NTC Aquatics – Developing Underwaters

I recently came back from the 2013 Arena Grand Prix Series at Orlando FL and also from a Last Chance Meet in Clearwater FL. After observing both of my Teams (Senior and Age Groups), I decided to pay more attention to the “details” in swimming.

I call details to those very important aspects of fast swimming. The most critical this weekend was our turns, breakouts and underwater dolphin kicks. Today’s workouts is the one we did this morning with our Senior Group at 5:30 AM. We spent a great deal working on these details and making sure our student athletes understand the importance of them.

Fast swimming to our organization is simply a combination of every aspect that will make our student athletes swim more efficiently, with less drag and with flawless technique. Yes, they must be in shape and ready to go but also everything must click and be in sync.
