Single Arm Freestyle Drill

Single arm freestyle combines many essential features of the whole stroke and is a great advanced swim skill to try out!  With only one arm operating, the swimmer must 

1. use core and spinal stabilisers to minimise unnecessary movement;  

2. use precise timing and coordination of whole body movement to maintain forward propulsion, incorporating the feeling of hip drive  

3. find balance and stability before movement. 

We also use this sequence to introduce the mechanics of freestyle catch and press.
