Freestyle is the most fundamental stroke in swimming and, therefore, great technique is essential to avoid injury, increase quality practice time, and build a distinct feel for the water. The instructors in this video have thousands of hours of experience instructing their athletes and demonstrate exceptional teaching techniques that increase understanding and critical thinking.

Isolate each component - kick, catch, pull, rotation, breathing, etc. - to diagnose stroke flaws, including flaws that are hidden by other components of the stroke. Make corrections and condition all the building blocks of the stroke, then use progressions to build the stroke from the core out and the kick up for fast, efficient and sustainable freestyle. Coaches of swimmers at all levels will find drills they can add to make workouts more productive and their swimmers more successful.

Body Alignment

You'll see drills that help athletes learn the posture - from head to toe - that will support natural buoyancy in the water and provide greater power of stroke with less drag, using arms to control the balance. Through daily use of these drills, a coach or swimmer can alleviate many problems regarding water flow. These drills will help:

  • Develop lateral balance, allowing freestylers to be comfortable traveling on their sides, rather than on their stomachs, for less resistance and more sustainable speed
  • Teach swimmers with "heavy legs," particularly sprinters, to create a balanced body line that supports the hips and legs, leaving the kick for propulsion

Training the Kick

A high, tight, and fast kick helps to provide the speed needed to move the body quickly through the water while helping to maintain body line. You'll learn to build strength and stamina so that the kick is still strong at the end of the<
