  • OPEN TURNS: The open turn is often done incorrectly. Extra movements are added in that slow swimmers down. Keep it simple by spinning backwards and keeping your elbows in close. If you listen closely to Tom, he will show you how he each became the fastest swimmer in the country through the turn.
  • UNDERWATER DOLPHIN KICKING: The fastest swimmers in the world dolphin kick off of their walls and breakout ahead of the competition. It's not as hard as you think. Tom will help swimmers improve their technqiue as well as commit to a number of kicks off of every wall so that they can imporve their underwaters now as well as in the future.
  • BREAKOUTS: Learn how to carry momentum from the underwater dolphin kicks into the breakout by timing the first stroke and staying streamlined. Your swimmer will practice keeping their head down and it'll make a big difference in their breakout!
