Background Plyometrics revolutionize the way swimmers compete, injecting a surge of power and explosiveness into their strokes. It's not merely about the hours logged in the pool; it's about maximizing every ounce of athleticism. As swimmers ascend to higher echelons of skill, traditional methods alone won't suffice. Enter plyometrics: the secret weapon in unleashing untapped potential. Imagine the raw force of a swimmer's dive off the blocks, propelled by the energy of lightning-fast muscle contractions. That's the essence of plyometrics at work. Those jump boxes at the pool aren't just...

  Have you ever watched the World Championships of Swimming? The Olympics? These are the top tier meets where the greatest swimmers in the world compete. Both these meets as well as many others are swum in Long Course Meters- the global standard for swimming competition where the pool is 50 meters instead of 25 yards.

As a coach it is my job to be ultra-critical and constructive towards your children. As a developing athlete sometimes it’s not always the easiest to hear the words “you can do better”. So, thank you parents for always being there, driving your athletes to practice, welcoming them with a dry towel, and reminding after a big loving hug and warm dinner that...

You can practice swimming anywhere: By doing stretches, watching swimming YouTube videos, playing other sports, and even (and especially) by setting goals and dreaming about...
