Swimming Drill Demonstration

Description

Dive
Stand firmly on the poolside with toes around
the front edge. Place hands to the side or front of
the legs; Hands & Fingers will secure body
position with body weight very slightly forwards
Dive out down the pool to full stretch; At the
highest point of the dive drop the head toward s
the water surface, the whole body then enters
through the same point of contact on the water
surface which the hands, arms and head has cut
as if you were diving through a hoop; Come out
of this position and into a streamlined position
following entry into the water in order for the
body to become streamlined; Hold a streamlined
position underwater and execute one
breaststroke arm pull past your hips and one full
leg kick as the hands recover forward s
underwater, the head then breaks the water
surface to breath, ensure the leg kick helps the
body to the water surface. It is possible to find
greater speed whilst underwater due to good
s t reamlining and momentum. A slightly deeper
dive is required for breaststroke giving depth to
achieve the pull and kick action. Never dive into
shallow waters.
