CURRICULUM

BUTTERFLY

Many swimmers fear the dreaded butterfly... FEAR NO MORE because Paralympian Tucker Dupree has arrived! Learn how to swim a fast and RELAXED butterfly stroke at this swim clinic.

  • Body position: Stay right on the surface and press your chest to keep your hips high. Engage your core so that you can ride along the surface of the water with ease.
  • Kick: The dolphin kick can be a challenge for swimmers of all ages! The way that you have to use your chest, core, and hips takes a lot of muscle control and strength! Practice drills with Tucker and learn the essential components to a strong and smooth fly kick!
  • Pull: The butterfly arm pull is multi-dimensional. How long should you reach? How deep should you pull? Tucker will show each swimmer the right arm pull for them while also learning how to get more power out of every stroke.
  • Timing: Breath, kicks, and arms, they all happen at the same time! The key to a smooth and relaxed butterfly is the timing of how each component fits together. Build a better butterfly and you won't believe how much faster you go with an easier stroke!

BREASTSTROKE

Swimming a fast and efficient breaststroke requires one of the most difficult skills in swimming: patience. Learn how to get more out of every kick and pull and lunge forward towards faster times in your breaststroke!

  • Kick: The breaststroke kick can be a challenge to learn and even harder to perfect. Unlike anything in swimming, your feet must be flexed and wide as you begin the kick. Snap your feet together keeping your knees close and hips high to jump off the water every stroke. Tucker will teach participants at this clinic how to improve on their breaststroke kick!
  • Pull: Smaller is better! Don't sweep around for a huge pull, keep it small and quick so that you grab onto the water and then shoot forward with each stroke.
  • Timing: The WHEN in breaststroke requires precision, focus, and patience. Don't rush into your pull, kick, or breath. Understand how each piece of the stroke fits together and walk away from this clinic a faster breaststroker.
