Skills will include:

  • Bodyline: Your freestyle will never be fast without a strong bodyline. Your swimmer will learn to maintain good posture and engage their core to have a foudation for a stronger and faster freestyle.
  • Kick: Become a stronger and faster kicker through learning about both the technqiue and timing of each kick from a National Champion.
