If you guys look at what Dr. Rushall says, he says that, “Drill is good for beginners. Drill is okay for intermediate swimmers, but drill is harmful to elite swimmers.”
Depending on your level that you may be personally, or the level of the swimmers that you are coaching, you may not even need to work on technique.
Personally, drill/technique work is mundane and can be considered garbage yardage. I do not do drill/technique work myself. I don’t coach too much of it either unless I have to.
You will learn the right technique by doing it over and over again and doing it at race pace.
There really isn’t too much of a need to implement a technique or drill set. But that’s just my personal opinion.
