Stroke Technique Sheets for Coaches and Swimmers:

By Gary Barclay
Freestyle Technique

The freestyle stroke is the fastest, most efficient stroke, because it maintains the body in a streamlined position with the limbs able to apply constant propulsive forces due to the arms alternating action and the continuous flutter action of the legs.

Freestyle Breathing Swimming Tips

Tips on how to improve your breathing in freestyle.

Backstroke Technique
While backstroke maintains the body in a streamlined position, with the limbs able to apply constant propulsive forces due to the arms alternating action and the continuous flutter action of the legs, it is not as fast or efficient as freestyle. Backstroke is swum with arms out to the side of the body, meaning a swimmer cannot pull directly under their body, resulting in not reaching full potential power.

Breaststroke Technique
Breaststroke has little relationship to the other strokes. In breaststroke, the limbs work simultaneously and symmetrically (not alternately) and there is no above water recovery of the arms


Butterfly Technique

It is important to develop good timing, technique and rhythm in butterfly over shorter distances before attempting any longer swims.
