Skills Development Framework
To promote skill development.
Help swimmers and parents understand the need for greater efficiency of technique as a primary consideration
To assist the swimming community in understanding land conditioning and how it directly impacts upon performance
Develop body awareness during land work that can translate to the pool environment, leading to a smoother progression route for swimmers
Create consistency of standards across Wales during the development pathway
Allow other coaches to share their thoughts on stroke development and focus swimmers to train on drills that will directly impact on their
Drill Progression Movement Flows
These videos will introduce swimmers to a Movement Flow sequence specific to developing the physical qualities required to complete the pool based Stroke Drill Progressions.
The videos will also introduce swimmers to a system of combining movements and exercises into ‘Movement Flows’. The goal of a movement flow is to combine exercises in a methodical sequence, moving from one pose to the next, expressing fluidity and allowing for smooth transitions. Performing Movement Flows, not only develops strength and stability, but also cultivates creativity within physical development.
These resources are designed to help athletes look after the health of their shoulders and protect against common injuries experienced by swimmers.
