An effective way for fast swimmers to get even faster is to practice their starts, underwater dolphin kicking and breakouts in every practice and race. Olympian Tyler Clary will teach you the key components to enhance your overall race performance!
FLAT START: Set the tone for a great race with a powerful, streamlined and fast start. There are countless intricacies to performing a great start and you only get better with practice; Olympian Tyler Clary will share stories on how he found time to practice and improve his starts both in and out of the water and then he'll teach you some of their favorite strategies on how to execute this explosive and athletic movement.
HAND PLACEMENT: Know exactly where to place your hands so that you can pull with your arms on the start.
FOOT PLACEMENT: Everyone's foot placement might be a bit different but our clinicians will teach you how to figure out what is best for you to gain both stability on the block and explosive power when leaving the block.
REACTION TIME: The quicker you react the quicker you'll get in the water! Learn the secrets of improving your reaction time. Practice drills for a faster reaction time off the blocks
BODY LINE/ENTRY: How you enter the water is just as important as how explosive you are off the blocks. Experiment with how steep is too steep, how to get into one small entry hole and how to stay strong from fingertips to toes. Work on eliminating water resistance for the tightest possible entry and learn to squeeze the ears tightly and elongate the body for the most optimal position.
UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: Absolutely, undeniably, the fastest way to move through the water! Whether you dolphin kick on your stomach, side or back, understanding the importance of streamlined, underwater speed is vital for every swimmer! Let our clinician teach you how to make the most of your streamline and underwater kicking, as well as teach you drills on how to improve upon those skills.
BODY POSITION: The simplest way to maintain your speed is a TIGHT STREAMLINE! Our world-class athletes will reinforce to you why they NEVER take streamlining for granted. Every fast swimmer must look like a rocket when they push off the wall!
CORE DRIVEN: Not a single great dolphin kicker kicks from their knees down! Our clinician will instruct you on how to engage your kick from the core, utilizing your chest press and hip drive to create a fluid undulating motion.
BREAKOUTS: Carrying the speed from your turn into the first stroke cycle is crucial for maintaining momentum. Learn the key components of a breakout that make you more confident during a race!
TIMING: Learn to time your breakout so you can take advantage of the momentum gained during your turn and underwater dolphin kicking!
HEAD POSITION: Don’t breathe on your first stroke! Break the water with your head down- maintaining body position and carrying the speed through the water.
STREAMLINE: Focus on pushing the streamline to make this the fastest part of your race!
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Tyler questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
