Swimming Drill Demonstration


The turn is executed by rolling over onto your front on the last stroke into the wall, drop your head down towards the knees and lift the hips and feet upwards as you rotate. Plant your feet on the wall and drive off with both legs. Push off underwater on your back with your arms stretched out in a streamlined position hugging your ears. After the push off execute a dolphin leg kick for a few seconds or up to a maximum of fifteen metres within the laws of swimming. The dolphin leg kick is more powerful than a traditional split kick as the feet are kept together creating good undulation and rythum whilst underwater.
