Our swimming unit guides students to refine their four basic swim strokes.
Freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke. Assessment is part of everyday teaching and learning.
Video Free style is first stroke that every one learns.
Key points. Face down……leading a steam-line position body with your top of head and steam line position with freeze up their shoulder allows in nice long and loose stroke.
Leading with your face don’t work because face covers the front of body more surface area and which will create the body less aerodynamic.It creates tightness and lack of range of motion in the shoulders the does not help you to go stream line.
Always Face down –comfortable looking down at the bottom of pool with eyes open.(looking 3/4 bottom of pool)
High elbow with low hand ensuring nice and relax stroke allows to hang close to the surface of the water…conserving energy.
Please don’t use wind mill (hand is higher than the elbow)
Hand —Balance stroke..(not to cross the midline)while swimming body rotation right side and left side for balanceno crossing of hand ( no zig and zag ) balance straight forward right side and left side attack as the body rotates from side to side
Balance again-Hand entry should be is right in front of shoulder not crossing the midline.
