New Chapter of Breaststroke Basics with Steve Haufler
Coaches need to continue to spend time inventing, creating, or just taking the time to step back and teach.
All coaches and teachers should start every session with a plan, but sticking to the plan line-by-line doesn't always make for a productive practice.
This week's set is a thinking type of set, working on fast hand exit for backstroke and getting some length into your freestyle.
Getting a new season started, you should always revisit, and set up habits that will help you through the entire season.
Starting practice focusing on Underwater Freestyle, and then trying to carry that feeling in to longer, and increasingly faster intervals.
This week's set is for beginning swimmers (and for advanced swimmers who need to hit REFRESH on their technique page). If you are a goswimtv.com subscriber, you can link to video of great swimmers demonstrating the techniques.
Every coach's essential video for teaching an efficient and fast butterfly.
This week's pic is from a team camp last weekend with the Etown Dolphins.

"Steve Haufler is one of the finest coach-teachers on the planet. Steve makes use of mirrors, mannequin heads, tape measures, score cards, swim dolls, laminated photos, rope, plastic cups, noodles and more. This DVD is highly recommended by the ASCA Staff." -- American Swim Coaches Association
A quick question for the swimmers, and do your best to think about it... I'm sure it was a LONG time ago.
With so much swimming, racing, training, or coaching, motivating, teaching... when was the last time you just sat back and watched people swim.
