An effective way for fast swimmers to get even faster is to fully utilize their underwater dolphin kicking in every practice and race! An Elite FFT Clinician will teach participants how to properfly execute the movement. Plus, develop a POWERFUL BUTTERFLY with drills that will improve your stroke!
 
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 athlete 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.
  • KICK COUNT/FREQUENCY: Take advantage of every single kick for better training and racing! Learn to use the up AND down portion of the dolphin kick for better distance per kick. 

BUTTERFLY: You have the rhythm and timing that propel you down the pool in this fluid and powerful stroke, now learn to take advantage of your core and hip drive, coordinated with a high catch, to catapult you past your competitors.

  • CORE DRIVEN ROTATION: Your coaches tell you to undulate, now learn how to press your chest and drive your hips to create that undulating movement and create forward momentum.
  • PULL: A high and early catch will allow you to put pressure on the water backwards which will propel you forward.
  • TEMPO: Enhance your racing skills by understanding your stroke rate, or stroke count, and how it is just as valuable as knowing your pace.
