Watch out for the Club’s Blog – “Making Waves” 

Coach Ray Winstanley

I recently posed the question, “are breaststrokers just people who hang out with swimmers”?! I must admit I did get some interesting responses, especially from a couple of our ‘gun’ breaststrokers!  As swimming is such a tough and time consuming activity other questions often get raised as our athletes strive to pick up fractions of seconds …. should I use a kickboard at training, what are the keys to tapering, how do I become a great distance swimmer …. and on it goes.

A good resource for pondering such questions is Swimming Science – below are a few articles of interest that may answer some questions and prompt many more! I love to discuss these types of issues with our swimmers so if you have a moment please read up and ask away!
