The Fundamentals of Fast Swimming

The MOST MISSED OPPORTUNITY for faster swimming is forgetting about the key fundamentals of techqiue. Chloe Sutton and Tim Phillips will help swimmers of all ages and abilities understand the details that separate the good swimmers from the great by going through the foundations. Take the time to learn these components and you'll be amazed at the difference that it makes.

  • Body Position: The way that you hold your body in the water is key to every aspect of swimming. Knowing and understanding which muscles to hold strong and which to relax can help you ride higher and faster in the water. Chloe will help all swimmers feel this proper position and he will also teach them drills to practice and improve their body position.

  • Streamline: The streamline is SO MUCH MORE than just putting your hands together above your head! A tight and strong streamline activates specific muscles throughout your body so that you can improve the effectiveness of your start and turn. Tim Phillips will teach you the tricks that he uses to keep his body tight and strong in his streamline position to slice through the water faster. The thought and effort that you put into this position will help you reduce drag and go faster!!

  • Feel for the Water: The fastest swimmers in the world have developed an sensitivity to feeling the water. They use this sensitivity to help them feel the most powerful position to push themselves through the water as well as ways that they can reduce drag. This ability to understand yourself and your position in the water only can be developed through persistant practice. Let Chloe and Tim teach you this skill!
