Why Streamline kickout focus early? Why coaching consistency is essential. Components of a great kickout How to progress and stress our kickouts from beginners to age group swimmers.
Why Streamline Kickouts Early? Easiest way to improve Skills that are plausible for new swimmers Biggest bang for your buck Good foundation for proper turns and breakouts Any age and any level can do a great job of them!
Coaching Consistency Keeping swimmers for longer periods of time can result in Mastery as opposed to gains and losses. Avoid the broken family syndrome of swimmers pitting coaches against each other in their demands Long Term is Now... Don’t wait, don’t hope for them to want to later, don’t think a better time will come! Fitness /Speed etc only mean something done with the mechanics you will be using at the competition. Don’t work on kickouts in workout they will not be there for meets!
Kickout Progression Push off the wall Body Dolphin Fly kick Streamline glide Add pieces together (push off and streamline glide/push off and fly kick etc) Distance for kickouts/number of kicks/speed of kicks... I like distance first, but all should be used Kickouts under Pressure... Increase the expectations and don’t overlook those who are not keeping up
Body Dolphin How and why?
Push off and learn to kick on both sides
Body Position off the wall
Steamline Kickout Bobs
Getting your bearings after the flip
Front to back over and over
Same skill different angle
Hula Hoop Challenge...
Markings on the Bottom for KO
Kickouts under ??
Why we kick with a board
Add expectations to the KO
Add a break out use marks on bottom
Kickouts timed with roll
Keep expectation on KO during WO
More Turns and Less Swimming
How to measure/test and monitor KO’s Number of kicks random/requested and checked Kickout distance or number of kicks in a set on top of a pace time/hit time requirement Increase kickout expectations through a set or a swim Speed of kickouts Listen but verify! Build from where you are to where you want to be... Bad kickers still need a kickout!
