Faster Butterfly and Breaststroke Racing Nutrition, Mental Strength, and Goal Setting

National Champion Laura Sogar will teach your swimmer the KEY components to enhance your overall race performance in specific areas of both butterfly and breaststroke as well as improving nutrition, mental strength, and goal setting!

  • BUTTERFLY: Butterfly does NOT have to be the hardest stroke. As an elite swimmer, Laura Sogar knows the key components to swimming an efficient butterfly stroke. Laura will teach her favorite drills and exercises to help each participant find an efficient butterfly pull, powerful kicks, and a well timed breath. She has perfected her form to become one of the fastest in the world and she will ensure that your swimmer will leave with more knowledge and confidence in their butterfly stroke!
  • BREASTSTROKE: Breaststroke is the most challenging stroke to master technically. The strategies for proper form in breaststroke require an efficient pull, a powerful kick, proper timing, and an aggressive attack forward each stroke. Laura will help each participant understand what perfect form feels like and she will also teach drills and exercises to practice these skills so that your swimmer can continue to improve now and in the future.
  • NUTRITION: Nutrition has an enormous impact on a swimmer's performance. Without enough energy or calories coming in, you cannot expect your body to respond quickly to the high demand of our sport. Parents and athletes need to understand the relationship between what you eat and how well you perform.
