SIP 023: Long course training for developmental swimmers

Get the most out of the 50 meter pool for your beginner swimmers

 

Focus on distance training

What about technique? Do you sacrifice skill work for endurance?

Emphasis on free and backstroke

What about BR and FLY?

Is there a place for short distance skill work when 50 meter pool time is limited?

 

What is an acceptable amount of kicking? Should you do any?

 

How many meters is ideal for beginners?

 

How do you prepare for long course with your beginning swimmers?

 

 

 

Specific steps we take:

-Gradual increase in yardage in 4 weeks before we switch to outdoor pools

  • More emphasis on free and backstroke: long body line
  • Additional Kick sets
  • Strong focus on glide and reach in br
  • Decrease in fly arm stroke work
  • Increase in fly kick work

 

Continue with about 1/2 short distance skill work, but lean more to endurance training (aerobic training).
