Front Scull Kick on front with arms outstretched. Make small movements with your wrists only- a good way to get a feel for the water
Kick on side Aim for a body rotation of 45 degrees with one arm outstetched in front and one by side
Fists Ball your hand into a fist while swimming to encourage correct position of the forearm in the pull stage
3/4 catchup One hand is held out in front of the body until the other arm is about to enter the water before starting the pull. Encourages a longer glide and a good body rotation
Finger trail During the recovery phase, the tips of the fingers are dragged along the surface of the water making sure of a high elbow recovery
Single arms Only half the stroke, allowing concentration on coordinating howeach arm should be moved through the water
Zip ups Trail thumb from thigh to armpit on recovery- encourages good high elbows
Armpits Bring hand in to touch armpit during recovery
