Bill Wadley and Bill Dorenkott, Ohio State Head Men’s and Women’s Swimming Coaches, have coached 118 NCAA Champions. In this video, they present the Underwater Dolphin Kick Drill that will improve your times.
When doing the Underwater Dolphin, it is important that you have a tight body line and keep your body in one plane of water. Coach Wadley instructs to keep the hands, head, hip and heels all in one line and make sure to snap the kick from the core. The goal is to keep the chest and head still, so the kick comes from the rib cage down.
Ohio State Head Men’s Swimming Coach, Bill Wadley, teaches youth swimmers techniques of the backstroke turn. They will learn to try to take a last breath before rolling over to their stomach to begin the turn. This drill emphasizes rolling over without pausing for that last breath, which will break up the necessary rhythm and speed of the turn.
Each athlete has to decide a direction they will turn by which side they feel more comfortable turning toward.
