This session will focus on swimming's most competitive stroke FREESTYLE! 2012 Olympian Chloe will will teach swimmers to take advantage of every stroke and amaintain a powerful kick! Plus, Chloe will teach particiapnts the key components to a FAST FLIP TURN!
FREESTYLE: Freestyle has evolved from a long reaching, over rotated stroke with a kick from anywhere between two to six beats into a higher tempo, more forward driven and assertive stroke. Chloe Sutton will hammer home why an early catch is crucial, how to combine extension and rotation to find your ideal stroke length and how to use your legs as a powerful engine to propel you down the pool.
BODY POSITION: Instead of relying on your kick to keep your hips high, learn skills and drills elite swimmers rely on to keep a horizontal body position throughout a race.
KICK: Embrace the six beat kick! This strong, steady kick just at the surface will become the engine that drives you forward.
PULL: Utilize an early vertical forearm to put pressure backwards on the water immediately upon entry to help propel you forward.
TEMPO: Finding the right balance between the number of strokes you take and the distance you move each stroke is different, but crucial, for everyone. Learn useful strategies to help you determine what stroke count is best for you. Then learn how and when to pick up your tempo based off your racing plan.
FLIP TURNS: Numerous coaches talk to their athletes about the walls being "Free Speed"! At the turn, you get the opportunity to recreate momentum off of each wall; learn how to take advantage of that opportunity.
APPROACH: Learn why elite athletes are disciplined and avoid breathing on their last stroke into their turn.
ROTATION: Getting your feet to the wall quickly is paramount for a fast turn! Practice a fast and tight rotation by learning to use your head, core and by driving your heels to the wall.
FOOT PLANT: Plant your feet, shoulder width apart, with toes pointing more toward the surface than toward the bottom of the pool to initiate a more powerful push off.
PUSHOFF: Leaving the wall streamlined, with a well timed glide, is one of the easiest and most valuable habits you can create for yourself!
ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Chloe Sutton questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into her training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
