By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Nov 10, 2013 08:39PM

A mile of 25s will give you many oppotunities to work your pushoffs and breakouts.


Starts - Deep Pool Vertical Entry

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Oct 22, 2013 07:12AM

So you've got a big group of kids you're trying to teach starts to, but you have to be safe, and run them all through a skill quickly and repeatedly... start from the end.

Drill of the Week - Freestyle Pull-Buoy Balance

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Feb 12, 2013 08:29AM

Swimming Set of the Week - October 26, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Oct 26, 2012 10:53AM

If you're not swimming FAST at practice, you should be THINKING at practice. This week's set is a thinking set, requiring focus and core control.


Breaststroke - Body Dolphin Straight Arms

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Oct 02, 2012 08:12AM

When doing drills, it's important to understand how all the pieces fit together to get the most out of every drill.


Main Set Thursday - Legs!

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jul 20, 2012 09:54AM

Overloading the legs was the goal today, and from the looks of the team walking to the locker rooms... mission accomplished.


Main Set Monday - Posture

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Jun 26, 2012 09:55AM

Another drill / swim set. This one is actually a bit more challenging in a few ways, but enjoyable.


Breaststroke - Thumb-Lock Extension

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | May 08, 2012 09:02AM

Freestyle - Inner-Elbow Extension

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 06, 2012 10:58AM

Breaststroke - The Last Stroke

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Feb 16, 2012 09:54AM

This isn't really a drill...just something that happened this morning during a lesson.


Freestyle - Ankle Pull Buoy

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Feb 14, 2012 10:06AM

Maintaining a stable core is an important part of a good freestyle. This standard drill is a good one to help accomplish this.
