Teach your swimmers how to properly approach the wall for a turn set up no matter what the stroke.

Ohio State Swim Coaches Bill Wadley and Bill Dorenkott share long axis and short axis turn drill progressions for each of the four competitive strokes. They begin the presentation with freestyle turn instruction that includes two unique flip turn drill progressions that each of the coaches use with their respective teams. These progressions contain over 10 drills that train a swimmer on every aspect of the turn, the approach, execution, wall set up, push off, strategies for getting off of the wall with maximum speed and power and the all important breakout with the timing of the first stroke and how to align the body for a seamless transition into the breakout stroke and establishing race tempo. The technical aspects of the flip turn apply to the backstroke turn.

In the back turn segment, the coaches focus on the importance of the swimmer getting from his or her back to the front and how to accomplish this with a fast, connected rotation and transition into the summersault. Also discussed are strategies in body angle for an ideal push off and underwater travel segment before adding the flutter kick and establishing race tempo.

Similar to the long axis turn segment, the short axis turn instruction for fly and breast include each coach presenting an effective drill progression for these turns. Coach Dorenkott divides the open turn into the front half and the back half and presents a unique progression for each before pulling the entire turn together.

Coach Wadley presents an away from the wall sequence that focuses on executing a "reverse tumble" to generate a tight rotation, something he believes is essential to a fast turn. Both sequences are clearly explained and demonstrated along with full turn demonstrations of each.

In the IM Turn segment, the major focus is on:

  • Back to Breast Crossover Turn - The secret to teaching the crossover turn
  • Fly to Back - Preparing to maximize the underwater dolphin
  • Breast to Free - How to carry your speed through the turn

Teach your swimmers the fundamentals of the turn through effective drill progressions and attention to detail that will lead to championship results.
