Swim Set - 2-Person Relays

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | 8 days ago

Here's a fun set that challenges and builds team spirit.


Main Set Monday -- Birthday Butterfly

By Barbara Hummel to Bronze (Learning) | Jun 23, 2014 04:50PM

This one's for Reemi, who asked us to create a butterfly set for her birthday swim.


Main Set Monday - Tempo Trainer Discovery

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | May 05, 2014 02:02PM

When teaching swimmers how to figure out their rate for freestyle, sometimes you have to put them into a state of discomfort. Some rates are good for some, some are good for others. Treating the entire group the same means there will always be someone who is unhappy. Oh well. ;)


Main Set Monday - Age Group Sprints

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Apr 16, 2014 11:34AM

Working with younger swimmers, thinking about technique, and forcing some speed.


Main Set Tuesday - Simple Stroke Count Sequence

By Glenn Mills to Bronze (Learning) | Mar 19, 2014 10:50AM

Playing with stroke rate, length, and speed is constant game for swimmers of every level. Learning how to make this a habit is much tougher.


Main Set Wednesday -- Kick!

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Feb 19, 2014 04:32PM

Taking a standard set of broken 100s today, and changing things around by making them 50% kick and 50% swim.


Main Set Monday - 50s!

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Feb 04, 2014 02:33PM

This is a set that will challenge all swimmers on all levels. Don't be wimpy on the first 50, or it will be too easy.


Main Set Monday - Breaststroke Adaptation

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jan 27, 2014 04:55PM

Here's a set that will challenge your breaststrokers to learn their stroke.


Main Set Monday - Longer Lunchtime Swim

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 30, 2013 03:38PM

We don't typically have much opportunity to swim long swims at the lunchtime practice. Many people show, and it's a short course practice, so long swims would create too much chaos.


Main Set Monday - Catch Until You Can't

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 09, 2013 02:50PM

This set is designed to push the swimmers technique until they can't hold it anymore. Make sure the intervals reach a level that is right on their edge of ability.


Main Set Friday - Deep Turns

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 06, 2013 02:46PM

Learning from Ricky Berens, we focused on deep pushoffs for this practice.


Main Set Wednesday - Drill Swim

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 04, 2013 02:41PM

Alternating drilling and swimming to teach better extension in Freestyle.


Main Set Monday - How To Say 15 x 200s Nicely

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 02, 2013 01:36PM

Getting your swimmers to swim 15 x 200s without them actually feeling that boredom that can sometimes come with it is always a challenge. Breaking up the set helps.


Main Set Friday - Day After Turkey 25s

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 29, 2013 01:33PM

The set sounds easy, unless you do exactly what's asked.


Main Set Wednesday - IMs... Kinda

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 27, 2013 01:26PM

Here's an IM set that puts the emphasis on good, strong, stroke swimming.
