Three-time Olympic coach David Marsh teaches you how to build efficiency and power using a series of drills designed to improve posture and body alignment while maintaining a strong kick and establishing a high catch. With the assistance of multi-time Olympic medalist Cullen Jones and National Team member Madison Kennedy, you'll see over 30 drills that cover everything from the fundamentals to critical details that are easily be overlooked. Learn how to maximize efficiency and power with a package of tips and strategies especially for freestylers. Creating and maintaining a tight body line is the foundation of a faster, more efficient freestyle. Coach Marsh introduces a series of drills that teach athletes to maintain proper body alignment by focusing on swimming narrow with a long spine and low breath. You'll learn how to develop other elements of freestyle without sacrificing the ideal body line. A "David Marsh Freestyle" is characterized by an open recovery with a high elbow catch that uses rotation to increase efficiency and power. Coach Marsh shares a number of high catch and rotation drills that help increase power. You'll also learn how to keep the body aligned with snap-back breathing, which emphasizes a quick breath and returning the head to its original position early in the stroke. Coach Marsh includes drills to build a stronger kick - one that is powerful enough to create a platform the swimmer can use to generate torque. A Marsh-style freestyler may recover with a straighter arm, rather than a high elbow to take advantage of the momentum he generates with a strong, accelerated finish. One of the best ways to improve swimming technique is by adding resistance or swimming with implements. Coach Marsh incorporates paddles, parachutes, tubing, pegs, and pull buoys to increase the athlete's feel for a high elbow catch and also improve timing and rhythm.

Mega Drills for Swimming Series
MD-04390A: with Coley Stickels, 14x NCAA All American with University of Arizona;has coached National Age Group record holders and Olympic Trials finalistsToday's athletes will thrive on the challenges that Coley Stickels' Mega Drills for Freestyle provides. These drills will not only teach your swimmers the most up to date freestyle techniques, but they will also engage your swimmers by making them think and feel at the same time. Providing a "solve the puzzle" challenge, these drills will develop a consistent feel for the critical aspects of the stroke, including: High elbow catch with an early vertical forearm, forward elbow and a hollowed arm pit Thumb in towards belly button in the pull phase of the stroke Rhythm of the stroke and timing of the breath Long, high neck extending the spine to create a flat back Flutter kick Throughout the instruction, Stickels' shows you how to train the most advantageous catch position. He incorporates small sculling to train the initial catch phase and progressive longer sculling movements that eventually transition into the full arm pull. Stickels emphasizes a "thumb towards belly" movement pattern under the body in his pull phase of the stroke. Many of his drills include snorkel work, as well as underwater recovery that allows the swimmer to watch and see for themselves where the hand travels on the pull portion of the stroke. You will see several drills that train timing for both the stroke itself along with teaching the timing of the breath. For stroke timing, Stickels' drills isolate the hand and hip connection that leads to proper body hand/body timing for the stroke. For breathing timing, you will learn how to teach your swimmers to minimally turn the head for a breath and quickly get the head back to midline with eyes to the bottom of the pool. These drills are excellent to assist swimmers that have a late breathing habit or swimmers that stop their kick during the breath. In his Turn Approach Drill, Stickels teaches how to coordinate the last arm pull into the wall with the flip turn. The result of this drill is a fast, tight turn with the feet quickly getting to the wall without excessive leg movement. Breakout drills are also included to help you teach your swimmers both the timing of the breakout stroke and proper alignment to minimize drag in the kick-to-stroke transition.Stickels' drill innovations allow the swimmer to feel the most important stroke components and to train skill essentials such as the turn and breakout. Stickels reinforces that drill work is a perfect way to reinforce stroke positives and also isolate and solve problem areas of the stroke to create more engaged, purpose-oriented swimmers.42 minutes (plus 17 minutes of Individual Medley technique). 2013.MD-04390B: with Coley Stickels, 14x NCAA All American with University of Arizona;has coached National Age Group record holders and Olympic Trials finalistsDiscover backstroke drills that run the gambit from simple, single focused drills to complex and multi-faceted drills.

Ohio State Drills & Skills for Swimming Series
MD-04330A: featuring Bill Wadley, Ohio State Head Men's Swimming Coach; 2010 Big 10 Coach of the Year, and Bill Dorenkott, Ohio State Head Women's Swimming Coach; combined they have won 13 Big Ten Championships and have coached 118 NCAA ChampionsFreestyle is the stroke every competitive swimmer must master. Ohio State Coaches Bill Wadley and Bill Dorenkott show you drills to develop the elements of fast freestyle in all of your swimmers, and then add the styles and techniques individual swimmers need to master swimming for every athlete, at every distance.This presentation begins with a detailed demonstration of how to attain the proper body position for successful freestyle. The common theme that both Coach Wadley and Coach Dorenkott profess is that of finding ways to increase propulsion and decrease drag. Attaining a long position that is stabilized with the core will assist greatly in drag reduction. To enhance the swimmers feel for attaining an ideal body position while moving in the water, a series of 12 kicking drills are demonstrated to maximize pull in the power zone. Drills for sprint and distance freestylers build core power for every stage of the stroke cycleThe drill progression builds on the kicking and core body series, adding strength and timing in the pull, from catch to recovery. The coaches discuss characteristics of a great freestyler, and adaptations coaches must make for differences in swimmers. Drills develop optimum hand placement, catch, pull, and recovery. An "open arm pit" drill series follows that is designed to train a "full arm full or water" catch position with an open arm pit. This high elbow catch with hip rotation style keeps the pull in the power zone - an out-front, open-armpit pull. This is an essential skill, particularly for sprint freestylers, for establishing an ideal catch position. Dorenkott and Wadley then follow with an additional 25 propulsion drills that combine to train proper body position while training the catch, pull, finish and recovery. Emphasis is placed on front quadrant (asymmetrical) freestyle with good length and line-up - especially for your mid to long distance freestylers. Included in these drills is a "hip slide" sequence that a hip dominated swimmer can implement to enhance his or her natural stroke tendencies. In all, nearly 40 drills, skills, and innovations are packed into this presentation that combine to create a highly efficient stroke that enhances propulsion while continuously decreasing drag. The benefit of having two DI head coaches and exceptional demonstrators make this product unique. Underwater footage enhances the instruction.As a swim coach, I am always interested to find the most up-to-date principles in how to swim the four competitive strokes as efficiently as possible. Coach Wadley and Coach Dorenkotts' Freestyle DVD not only did a terrific job of explaining the techniques used in the freestyle stroke but also they provided excellent freestyle drills to reinforced these concepts. I will be getting the whole set of instructional DVDs, which will be all I need. - Coach Bod, Houston, Texas67 minutes. 2013.MD-04330B: featuring Bill Wadley, Ohio State Head Men's Swimming Coach; 2010 Big 10 Coach of the Year, and Bill Dorenkott, Ohio State Head Women's Swimming Coach; combined they have won 13 Big Ten Championships and have coached 118 NCAA ChampionsDeveloping the right backstroke kick and body position enables your pull to maximize time and acceleration in the power zone.

All Access Swimming Practice with Sam Freas
with Dr. Sam Freas, Oklahoma Baptist University Head Coach (Men's and Women's),2014 NAIA Men's and Women's Swimming & Diving National Champions;Men's Back-to-Back-to-Back NAIA National Champions (2012-14), 2x Women's National Champions; 9x Conference Coach of the Year, producer of 19 Olympians and one world champion; coach of the Republic of South Africa's swim team in the OlympicsTurn your limitations into championships! As Sam Freas puts it, "The art of coaching is to make the best of what you have." Coach Freas started the swimming program at Oklahoma Baptist in 2012. In their first season of competition, Oklahoma Baptist men finished with four NAIA records and a National Championship and the women finished with two event championships and were national runners-up. In three years, the men have wone back-to-back-to-back NAIA Championships, while the women have won two national titles (2014 and 2012).In this instructional swimming DVD, legendary coach Sam Freas gives you unfiltered access to all aspects of his program, including dry-land training, pool training, mental training, and work in the weight room. Watch as Freas takes you through 3 days of live practices featuring his morning and afternoon routine and showing how he has achieved world-class success both in and out of the water.IN THE POOLThroughout both morning and afternoon workouts, Freas emphasizes that good technique is the key to fast swimming. Some of the skills he highlights include: Getting "up" on the surface of the water to increase speed Fast turns and finishes into the wall Breath control and underwater work Proper head and hand position Correct shape of a kick and foot speedFreas has his swimmers demonstrate drills on these topics and speak individually about how implementing small changes has dramatically improved their meet performance. His emphasis on proper body position, speed, quickness, and reduced reaction time is highlighted during his explanations, demonstrations and drill work with swimmers. In addition, his use of pulse rate of recovery rather than time intervals for swimming (and dryland exercise) is unique.DRYLAND TRAININGFreas takes you through his philosophies on stretching and flexibility, weight training, aerobic warm-ups, and reaction drills. He stresses the importance of incorporating each of these into a swimmer's daily routine to avoid injury and fatigue, lessen lactate buildup, and maximize meet performance. His programs emphasize both aerobic benefit and explosive contraction. This is important because drylands often neglect aerobic work and only include slow contraction, rather than explosive movement and speed of contraction which are needed for swimming success. Swimmers work individually, partnered, and as a group to demonstrate the effectiveness of these skills. Freas provides great strategies to take advantage of dry land and the weight room as a supplement to pool work to optimize a limited facility.In addition to his focus on proper technique, Freas gives you insight on communicating with athletes at all levels. He discusses the importance of motivational "mental coaching" and how through positive speech and image you can prepare their swimmers to consistently perform at an elite level. The segments from his team meetings provide a wealth of information on how to communicate with a large group of athletes. By incorporating these tools into his programs at Arkansas and LSU, Freas's swimmers achieved seven US records and three world records.Freas's experience and success in the world of swimming has enabled the Bison to develop a strong swim team with world-class athletes in their first year of NCAA swimming and diving. Coaches building a new program or looking to improve their current program will benefit from his guidance through three days of exemplary workouts and drills.342 minutes (3 DVDs). 2012.All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from [...]

    with Richard Quick,
    former Auburn University Head Men's and Women's Swim Coach;
    former Stanford University Head Women's Swimming Coach,
    12 NCAA Team Championships, 5X NCAA "Coach of the Year"

    Coach Richard Quick feels that a key component to becoming a champion butterflier is getting the body into a "plank-like" position. This position ultimately allows the tightest possible line of motion to assure that the energy of the stroke is focused forward rather than up and down. Coach Quick teaches the proper arm movement of the stroke beginning with the recovery, followed by the hand entry and pull phase of the stroke. Through an excellent drill series, demonstrated by Quick's young demonstrators, he shows how to add undulation to the stroke and incorporates the dolphin kick for timing and rhythm. Today's champions swim a tight, forward-focused butterfly and Richard Quick's unique drills series will have you swimming like a champion in no time.

    with Richard Quick,
    former Auburn University Head Men's and Women's Swim Coach;
    former Stanford University Head Women's Swimming Coach,
    12 NCAA Team Championships, 5X NCAA "Coach of the Year"

    Richard Quick's key to swimming championship breaststroke is to swim a stroke that is "forward focused." Utilizing younger swimmers as his demonstrators, Quick's initial focus is that of establishing the proper balance and position of the body in the water, Quick thoroughly explains the full arm motion for the stroke. In addition, he shares drills and strategies that keep the pull in front of the shoulders and deliver a fast hand recover. His arm pull drills teach you to accelerate the body in a forward motion, rather than up and down. Quick then turns his attention to adding the kick to accelerate the body forward. He emphasizes positioning the knees to be in line with the body, rather than pulled up underneath the body--a common error with many breaststrokers. To assure a swimmer of achieving an efficient, rhythmical breaststroke, Quick reviews the full stroke emphasizing the proper timing of the pull, breath and kick. A segment detailing the breaststroke pull-out highlights a critical technique in becoming a champion breakstroker!

    former Stanford University Head Women's Swimming Coach,
    12 NCAA Team Championships, 5X NCAA "Coach of the Year"

    Coach Richard Quick's start drill sequences are designed have the swimmer enter the entire body through the "hole" in the water and carry that speed into the stroke. Beginning with the forward start, Coach Quick leads his young demonstrators through a series of kneeling drills before moving up to the actual block start position. Quick utilizes the track start that affords maximum stability on the block and allows a quick take off. Quick then shares a lead up sequence for the backstroke start that is designed to get the hips over the water on the start before moving to the full backstroke starts. In the Turns segment of this video, Quick begins with turns for free and backstroke. Starting with the basics of body rotation, Quick progresses through a series of drills that result in teaching a swimmer that the tighter you can tuck the faster you can spin and the faster the turn. Quick also shares free and backstroke breakout strategies that include both a dolphin kick breakout and a flutter kick breakout. Quick then moves into turns for the breaststroke and butterfly. He builds the turn from the basics of teaching body rotation along with mid pool drills that require a tight tuck and fast spin before teaching the full turn at the wall for fly and breast. Quick teaches the basics of the breakouts for fly and the breaststroke and includes detailed instruction on how to do an efficient pullout. Quick then goes through all of the turns for the individual medley.
