09/01/05 CCB Masters Gloves...Nekked...Paddles

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Sep 01, 2005 11:28AM

The idea in the two main sets is to transition from gloves to nekked hands to paddles. You are adding surface area to your pull. In the second main set, you count strokes as you do the transitions, and try to keep your stroke count the same, even as you add more surface area. This is difficult to do, but it's a good exercise to make you aware of how -- and with what part of your body -- you're holding on to the water.

A Time For Learning

By Coach Black to Articles | Aug 26, 2005 04:57AM

This summer I have been busy doing lessons with kids in the area. All of the kids that I have worked with are on or have been a part of a competitive team. So I wasn't doing a learn to swim program.

08/25/05 CCB Masters Some Different Focus Points

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 25, 2005 10:23AM

Our last practice was almost all freestyle, so today we mixed in some other strokes -- and some different focus points.


08/23/05 Time to Get It Going Again

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 23, 2005 11:07AM

I've backed way off the swimming this summer (since Masters SCY Nats), and have been focusing more on running. But today I wanted to put it back in gear again with the swimming -- to start training for SCM Zones in early December.


08/23/05 CCB Masters Gloves, Nekked, Paddles

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 23, 2005 11:00AM

It's been way too long since I had my Masters team do a fistglove set. Today is the day! The idea of this main set is to experience what it's like to add surface area to your hands. You do a short set with fistgloves. Then you repeat the set with nekked hands. Then you repeat it again with paddles. We did not count strokes today, but if you want to add an extra challenge to this, count strokes on the fistglove set and try to maintain the same stroke count with nekked hands AND with paddles. Have fun.


08/18/05 CCB Masters Integrating Drill into Swim

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 20, 2005 12:04PM

We use this basic practice pattern a lot. I really like it because keeps the swimmers SWIMMING, but it allows me to work with them on drills and focus points. In any "round," there are four chances to work on one drill -- and four chances to integrate the lessons of the drill into your stroke.

This quick pic was taken from the Lazy Swimmer article. Teaching young swimmers how to properly push off is actually a very important part of swimming.
