Once we have the arm pattern, we put the whole thing together with something called Separation Drill.

We do the arms and the kick, but keep them completely separate.

We go I…Y…Scoop and Shoot, and then…

Suit…Flex…Circle…Squeeze.

Do the arms only.

Do the legs only.

Some kids, when you tell them to do Separation Drill, do a perfect breaststroke right away. They just go right into it.

Other kids, some of the real conscientious ones, do exactly what you tell them and it’s not a perfect breaststroke.

So then we say OK, just start the kick a little sooner, and that usually gives them the correct timing.
