You've already realized how important good form is for swimming. You've also realized how hard it is to maintain good form for the duration of your swim. Swim II picks up after Swim I (though you needn't have taken Swim I!) by helping you refine your technique, and develop the endurance to maintain good technique for longer and longer swims.
Each week we will create a different workout with drills for form and long distance swims to develop endurance. You will learn to maintain your form over long continuous swims. You'll also spend a great deal of time on pacing, with the goal of maintaining consistent times over multiple intervals, even as you get tired. In addition, we will provide one or two workouts and drills for you to do on your own so you maintain fitness and feel for the water in-between classes. At the end of this class you'll feel much more capable of long continuous swims without feeling like you need a rest.
This class deals solely with the FREESTYLE/CRAWL stroke.
Folks looking to participate should be able to comfortably swim 300 yards of the freestyle/crawl stroke without rest.
Coach: John Stewart
