Work on the Catch for the Distance Freestyle!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Three time Olympian and two time Olympic gold medalist, Peter Vanderkaay, uses the “Short Dog Paddle” drill to work on the freestyle catch. This drill will train swimmers to keep their fingertips down, their elbows high and their hands relaxed as they catch and release water to create propulsion.

Short Dog Paddle

Drill Summary: Begin by pushing off and getting into a nice streamline. Next, work on catching water out front with your fingertips down and elbows high, then release the water about halfway through the stroke. Remember to maintain soft, relaxed hands and keep kicking to stay in a good body position.
