Freestyle – Hand Entry Swim Drill

Head Race Club Coach Devin Murphy leads this session with the campers where they continue to work on the hand entry in freestyle. We like to use a mono snorkel and fins when working on the hand entry that allows the swimmer to focus on the swim technique. We are seeing the best swimmers in the enter the water with the fingers and hand squeezed together and then separated slightly for the initiation of the pull phase. Some swimmers have a natural tendency to do this technique but it's definitely worth noting and working on if you are like most swimmers that enter the water with relaxed hands.
