Coaches Tip: When performing an open racing turn in either butterfly or breaststroke, many swimmers focus on their hands and executing a legal two-handed touch, which is very important. But don’t forget your feet! We recommend that as you pull your knees in from behind you underneath your body, you place the top of one foot cradled in the sole of your other foot to create a more streamlined body position. This will create less drag as you drive your feet to the wall for a fast push off!! Try it…these are the type of great tips we work on at the UNH Nike Swim Camp!
