Swimming Drill Demonstration
On entering the water the body immediately stretches out into a streamline position with hands and feet together. The head is kept between the arms to cut back on resistance through the water. Execute a frontcrawl kick action or dolphin kick action (butterfly) to maintain speed for approximately four seconds. Ensure the leg kick drives the body to the water surface, maintain speed as you break the water surface with your head to execute full stroke swimming. It is possible to find greater speed whilst underwater due to good streamlining and momentum. Never dive into shallow waters.
