We're going to be focusing a lot more on our turns. Right from lane 1 up to the Masters. It's an area where I can see real room for improvement.

Main coaching points will be:
  • Accelerate into the wall in a straight line
  • Get your feet to the wall FAST
  • Get your hands/arms into streamline before you start to push off the wall
  • Push off in a straight line (aiming for the other end of the pool, not the next lane over)
  • Hold onto your speed off the wall and through the first couple of strokes.
