The start of something extraordinary

Freestyle Breathing 2

Having trouble with your swimmers dropping their arms when they are breathing? Get them to think about their favourite super hero and how they position themselves to fly most effectively. Try explaining that superhero’s have to keep their arm floating in order to fly through the skies, just like swimmers need to keep their lead arm high to move through the water most effectively. This is a great way to encourage imagination and creativity in your classes!
