with Richard Quick,
former Auburn University Head Men's and Women's Swim Coach;
former Stanford University Head Women's Swimming Coach, 3X Olympic Coach, 12 NCAA Team Championships, 5X NCAA Coach of the Year
and Milt Nelms,
World-renowned coach, clinician, and artist/illustrator.
Coach Richard Quick begins with an on deck overview of the entire stroke and how the concepts of Posture, Line and Balance are applied to the technique of the stroke. Coach Nelms discusses and illustrates Posture, Line and Balance in the butterfly with a classroom overview of the stroke. Back in the pool, Quick's positive and enthusiastic coaching techniques are evident as he coaches demonstrators the drill progressions that he uses with his team to build the butterfly stroke. Demonstrations are enhanced with footage shot both above and underwater. Drill progressions include: Undulation Drills - to teach balance/proper undulation; Recovery Drills - on-deck drills to enhance a correct recovery; Unnecessary Vertical Movement Drills-designed to keep a swimmer "on the line," and eliminate unnecessary vertical movement; Vertical Drills - kicking and stroke timing. The drill work culminates with full stroke demonstrations with side views and head-on views of a balanced and efficient butterfly. Championship Winning Butterfly is the most comprehensive butterfly instruction ever available anywhere.
