CURRICULUM: Butterfly

Get ahead of the competition at this High Performance Swim Clinic focusing on teaching you the proper technique for a faster and more efficient butterfly! National Champion in the 200 fly Tom Luchsinger will be in the water with participants helping them to improve!

Butterfly: Butterfly does not have to be the hardest stroke. In fact, the fastest butterflyers in the world have developed the technqiue necessary to swim fast AND relaxed. Tom will teach detailed technique and drills to help the participants improve now and in the future.

  • Body Position: Stay horizontal in the water and close to the surface to reduce drag and maximize your speed.

  • Arm Pull: Extend your arms forward and then utilize a strong catch with vertical forearms to put the pressure on the water in the correct direction.

  • Kick: How much should you bend your knees in your butterfly? Tom will help each partcipant feel the proper fly kick technique.

  • Breath: Most swimmers struggle with how to keep their breath as low as possible. Trust in Tom and work on keeping your chin in the water when you take a breath.

  • Timing: Timing is everything in butterfly. The way that the kick, pull, and breath work together will take a good butterflyer to a great racer!


ASK QUESTIONS: Swimmers and parents are invited to ask Tom questions during a Q&A session. Gain insight into his training regimen, diet and nutrition, and recovery tactics.

WATCH THE CLINICIAN: Observe Tom swim at full speed and demonstrate a progression of perfectly executed drills to achieve powerful, efficient and fast swimming.

PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST: Practice what you've learned by swimming at top speed with one of the best swimmers in the world! Hold on to your form while having the opportunity to challenge yourself.
