Curriculum

November 13: HIGH PERFORMANCE BUTTERFLY TECHNIQUE

Participants will work with our clinicians to improve the nuances of balancing power and fluid rhythm in one of the most dynamic athletic movements. Elite butterfliers maintain forward momentum by setting an immediate high catch with a perfectly timed kick. They are committed to a breathing pattern, perfecting their distance per stroke and maintaining a horizontal body position. Swimmers will work to make these habits their own!

  • BODY POSITION: Elite butterfliers focus on driving their momentum forward with minimal drag by keeping their heads low and hips high. Participants will work with Bayley Main on establishing and maintaining a proper butterfly body position.
  • KICK: Each butterfly stroke has two equally strong and well-timed kicks. Attendees will work on how and when to kick in fly for maximum speed.
  • PULL: Long and smooth strokes will allow swimmers to have a more efficient butterfly. Bayley Main will help participants get an early catch on the water for more power in each stroke.
  • BREATH: A common mistake swimmers run into is mistiming their breath. Swimmers will work on low and efficient breaths and WHEN to breathe so that they can swim more efficiently on the breath stroke.

November 14: HIGH PERFORMANCE BREASTSTROKE TECHNIQUE

More than any other stroke, breaststroke is the most varied. Out of the eight finalists at the Olympic Games, you might see eight different styles of strokes! A swimmer's timing and ability to eliminate resistance are both hallmarks of an efficient and powerful breaststroker. Participants have the foundation; now, they will work with Bayley Main on utilizing core and hip drive to create a fluid and more forward driving stroke.

  • BODY POSITION: The best swimmers in the world learn about the importance of being patient with their stroke and trusting their "glide position" at a young age. Many swimmers rush their stroke, create "drag," and exhaust themselves. The clinicians will work with participants to maintain a better body position for a more efficient breaststroke.
  • KICK: The kick is about 80% of the power in breaststroke. Our clinicians will work with participants to polish up their kick resulting in the ultimate propulsion forward!
  • PULL: Participants in this session will learn drills to encourage them to keep their hands and elbows high on the water throughout the entire pull, thereby minimizing resistance and maintaining speed.
  • TIMING: A fast breaststroke is all about the rhythm! The proper timing will make your stroke fast, smooth, and less taxing on the body. Learn how elite swimmers times their breaststroke for ultimate efficiency.
