Reply To: Distance for meets
Thanks for the input. I like the idea of having them choose one to emphasize. I do correct technique (as well as a non-swimmer can) all throughout our practices. I go by what Rushall’s curriculum teaches. This is very difficult to do since I can not perform these strokes myself! I guess we are doing okay. Our season to season drops after the first LC meet averaged 8.2% per event. I have no idea how that compares to where we should be. I do see a trend to greater drops in time than between the 2012-2013 season when we used traditional training. Over the 2013 season, one of my swimmers gained time in several events. We left the team in October 2013 but continued with traditional training. We made the transition to USRPT in March and April. I am anxious to see how we do in our next meet this weekend. Two of the kids will have missed training the entire week.
