Watch and learn the coaching philosophy behind a successful breaststroke and butterfly turn from 2010 Big 10 Coach of the Year, Bill Wadley. Along with the insight from Coach Wadley, you will see multiple drills that emphasize the points that he makes.
The key points are to finish with a kick, stay at water level, and not to look at the wall but concentrate on looking at the bottom of the pool.
Perform more efficient turns during your freestyle race with this drill featuring Ohio State Head Women’s Swimming Coach, Bill Dorenkott. The ‘One Turn Drill’ helps you work on a more streamline position when leaving the wall.
Breakout with your face first and not your fingertips “to ensure minimum resistance and keep the body in a nice horizontal plane” In the turn, pin both elbows next to the body with palms down, and then use the hands to assist in tumbling over quicker. With elbows still tight to the body, the hands extend forward into a strong streamline for the push off.
