As another new year begins, swimmers are busily preparing for big meets in the short course season. In Pennsylvania and many other states, it is also high school swim season so families are on go! While it might be tough to fit one more thing into your schedule, consider that this is a great time to take a technique lesson and do some tweaking on starts and turns. Given short course requires more turning, it can make or break a decent swim. In practice sessions, swimmers have to swim in circle format making it challenging to really focus on target turns. Even with specific turn practice, it never seems enough to get it right under pressure. This is where a private lesson can really help you to break down the mechanics and rebuild the turn for conciseness and speed.
