Swimming Drill Demonstration


Reach for the wall following the leg kick. Touch the wall with both hands and immediately lift the knees towards the chest and plant both feet on the wall. Push one hand forwards cutting underwater and point this arm in the direction you wish to swim as soon as the knees start to lift. The trailing arm will move over the water surface and cuts into the water with the hand to meet up with your leading arm, at which point you will start to push off the wall with your legs. With both hands underwater hold a streamlined position following the push off. Stay underwater to execute one arm stroke and pull back past your hips, the hands are then pushed forwards close to the chest to the front of the stroke. As the hands recover under the body the kick is executed and sends the body to the water surface in the stretched position, allow the head to break the surface before you resume full stroke swimming.
