For those interested in the Richmond BC Kigoos Summer Swim Club

Coach Leo’s Intermediate B Updates

July 21st, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner

Regionals is quickly approaching in 2 weeks. At this point, some of you might be feeling tired before races and practices. As we finish up our Olympic Challenge week on Tuesday, remember to stay active, drink lots of water and sleep well as we enter our biggest and most exciting meet of the season. 

We had a very busy weekend at WRASA. As a group, our racing drive is definitely  more aggressive than before. All of you want to win and I can see it in your strokes. The area that needs the most improvement is the consistency of your strokes. You must be able to do Back-to-Back Turns and Touch Turns consistently! You know how to do them correctly, but you must also do them ALL correctly not only in 50m races but also the 100m races. Mistakes such as taking an extra stroke into the wall during Back-to-Back Turns, or finishing your race with 1 hand in Fly or Breast are just not worth it. Don’t let your efforts go to waste because of a skill you already know how to do. 

The key word this week is Confidence. Be sure in your strokes and execute your skills confidently along with your aggressive racing drive. Keep striving towards your goal times!

Our focus will be the following this week, 
1) Back-to-Back Turns
2) Touch Turns
3) Dives 
4) Individual work on your strokes 

See you this week! – Coach Leo
