Underwater Filming!

Saturday August 19, 2017

Our own Russ Walter has generously offered to do some underwater filming! Come to practice this Saturday at 6am to have a good workout and some underwater filming done! Come and SEE what you are missing! 

 

 

3 Reasons To Film your Swim

1.  See weaknesses in your stroke. 

This is the primary reason most seek out coaching and video analysis. If you can see something you are doing, your mind can begin to process the connection to what that feels like in the water. Many times, things feel ‘normal’ or even ‘good’ in the water but when it is caught on on video, you may begin to feel differently. 

3.  Catch opportunities for more POWER! 

Ever feel like your arms are just spinning? Some times that because you just did 200 yards of pulling and now you are attempting to sprint without paddles. Other times and most often, we find ourselves inefficiently moving through the water because we are not paying attention to the all so important catch or power phase of our stroke.  

When you can see yourself under the water, you will be able to see and analyze ( with your eyes at least) what you can do to create more power. 

 

2.  Become aware of YOUR body positioning. 

I remember watching in the 1996 Olympics a then 14-year-old Amanda Beard racing breaststroke in in a way you have never imagined a body to move. She was so high above the water, almost appearing going vertical with every stroke.

I also remember going to the pool and attempting moving my body just like she did. I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t move my body in the same way. I had a great coach that saw my struggle and explained to me that my body is just that, mine! She helped me custom-fit my breaststroke to me. It helped, a lot. 

By being aware of your own position in the water and knowing your own body, you will be able to create more efficiency and power with every stroke. 

We are not too fancy at the Rec Center with our GoPro, but with some good footage and analysis you will be off and swimming faster and better!

Flash Mini Meet Series

You just don't know when it's coming...

If you came to practice Thursday or Friday of last week, you were in for a surprise! We held a Flash Mini Meet. A quick intra-squad style meet within practice. Some loved it, some had other words for it…but you all did great! 

Here are the results of the meet: 

Team of Service!

Thank you all who helped in the Wheeler Family Yard project! It was amazing to see such great support!

Thank you for your donations of time, money and manual labor! Thank you for your kind words and love for our team members. 

Here is a thoughtful note from the Wheelers neighbor & bishop:
 
Please thank your team for what they did.  It was an act of service and kindness that will remain with me forever.  Your team is a great example of those who cherish their brother, love their neighbor, and serve mankind.  Thank you for allowing us to be part of your day, it made a great impact on all who were there.  Thank you for what you have done.
Sincerely, Steve Smith
