Olympians, Kara Lynn Joyce and Jimmy Feigen, emphasize the importance of a great freestyle sprint start. This drill focuses on the main points of a freestyle start to improve freestyle sprints.

Sprint Freestyle Start

In this segment, Kara reviews the main points of a sprint start: track start, toes curled over the edge, legs shoulder width apart, be on the ball of your foot, grip front of the blocks and tension in your arms. When the signal is given, start with a strong pull on the arms followed by an explosive leg push-off. The body should be streamlined before entering the water.

14x NCAA All-American with University of Arizona, Coley Stickels, teaches the Breakout Drill to ensure extension and streamline during freestyle. Learn key concepts to train the non-pulling arm to stay “velcroed” to the head to improve your freestyle.

Breakout Drill

In this drill, the swimmer pushes off the wall in a streamline position and takes 3 dolphin kicks. This is followed by immediate fast flutter kicking as the pulling arm goes through the high elbow pull and holds this position with the pulling arm now trailing and the lead arm still stretched out in front for a count of 3 full seconds.

Ohio State Head Men’s Swimming Coach, Bill Wadley, focuses on the backstroke turn. This video works on concepts of the backstroke turn to ensure proper foot placement in the middle of the cross, as well as proper streamline push offs.

Backstroke Turn

The video works on the usual 3 arm strokes from the flags into the roll and tuck with the feet placed against the wall. The drill stresses that proper backstroke foot placement places the feet in the middle of the cross to maintain a straight line streamlined push off. It is critical that the swimmer take the exact number of strokes into the turn to maximize the turn position and foot placement.
