Championship Winning Walls: Turns for All Strokes

with Richard Quick,
former Auburn University Head Men's and Women's Swim Coach;
former Stanford University Head Women's Swimming Coach, 3X Olympic Coach, 12 NCAA Team Championships, 5X NCAA Coach of the Year
and Milt Nelms,
World-renowned coach, clinician, and artist/illustrator.

In Turns for all Strokes, Coach Richard Quick, continuing the Posture, Line and Balance theme, takes you through learning/drill progressions for all competitive swimming turns. Coach Nelms follows with a classroom session where he explains and illustrates just how posture, line and balance are a factor in turns and wall push-offs by explaining and illustrating what he calls the "Power Triangle." Quick begins with a series of drill progressions methodically building long axis turns beginning with freestyle followed by backstroke. Prior to his progression drills to build a long axis turn, Quick first teaches how to spin a fast summersault. He then incorporates the components of the long axis turn with a progression of: Approach, submerging, the summersault, wall set-up, push-off utilizing the power triangle, balance-up and the breakout. For the short axis turns, Quick begins with teaching a backward spin/summersault, the basis of the short axis turn and follows with a progression of: Approach, backward spin/summersault, wall set-up, push-off utilizing the power triangle, balance-up and the breakout. Quick then teaches all of the Individual Medley turns, dividing them by long axis and short axis approach turns. Turns for all Strokes is enhanced with the combination of above-water and underwater footage and is a must for any coach and/or swimmer looking to dominate the walls.
