Swimming: Stroke Development Frontcrawl

Great drills and practices thank you. Have used to great success for...
Steve, Clayesmore Prep School

DESCRIPTION

Elite Body Position
The body position will be streamlined and horizontal lying flat with your face in the water looking slightly downward and forward. Hips slightly lower than your shoulders with rotation of the shoulders and upper body to allow more power throughout the pull. The shoulders should remain relaxed allowing the swimmer to create a small amount of roll in the body so as to cut through the water in a streamlined fashion. The hips should also roll in tune with the shoulders to eradicate any rigidity in the stroke. A common fault is snaking of the hips which swimmers should resolve as early as possible. Head is central and fixed turning to the left or right to breath. The head position should be firmly fixed on water surface with the eyebrows and forehead touching the water surface. The feet should break the surface, creating some white water splash from the turbulent mixture of water and air.
