Hamilton Aquatics – Elite Squad – Early Season Progression

Early Season Freestyle Stroke Progression. This session is aimed at working a strong kick into a streamline body line for Freestyle stroke development.

It is important to constantly give feedback to the swimmers to ensure great body line and core engagement through the stroke. This set should then develop further over the coming weeks to progress into a strong and efficient stroke, ready for a higher volume and intensity as we get further into the season.
