FREESTYLE

NOW is the time to build a foundation of proper form. As a young swimmer, the habits that you develop will stay with you for the rest of your swimming career. Swimming correctly not only helps you swim faster and more efficiently, but it also helps prevent injury! Connor will teach you the drills and skills to build a solid freestyle stroke through a progression of drills designed to make your practices more intentional, beneficial, and FUN! 

  • Body Position: The way you hold your body as you move through the water is so important. Being streamlined and straight through your core reduces drag while engaging your core connects the aspects of the stroke so that your whole body is working together. Learn proper body position to swim higher and slice through the water like a knife. 
  • Kick: What do strawberries and blueberries have to do with freestyle?! We'll let Connor explain that one! The kick is a complex aspect of the stroke. Practice engaging your whole leg and your core to get power in both directions of the kick. The timing is also paramount to swimming a connected freestyle. Learn when and how your kick fits into your stroke. 
  • Feel for the Water: When you watch Olympic swimmers, they seem to have a 6th sense for feeling the water. This is a skill developed after years of practice and drills. Learn to apply appropriate pressure on the water with both your hand and your forearm with a variety of sculling techniques. Learning and practicing proper sculling will not only enhance your feel for the water but will also build tremendous hand and forearm strength.
  • Think Differently: Change the way you think about drills and practice. Focus on what you are doing and how it's getting you closer to achieving your goals. Improvement in the sport of swimming is all in the details. Elevate your focus and elevate your performance!

ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Connor Jaeger questions during a Q&A session. Hear him talk and gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.
