Reply To: Teaching Technique
I think most if not every coach would agree that technique is king, but not many emphasize it like it’s king. Dr. Rushall has an e-book on coaching pedagogy. It’s something worth looking into. I think how to teaching proper techniques is a great topic and would like to learn more from others here.
I think some can do bilateral breathing but many are not comfortable it. A few of my swimmers can do it. Rebecca Soni doesn’t appear to have a glide phrase in her 200m br in London for the last 100m.
I am still trying to implement all the techniques according to Dr. Rushall. I found using underwater videos for immediate feedback to be most helpful. I’m interested in what others have to say bec I have only been coaching for a little less than 2 years.
