A weekly update from Coach Rodrigo and Coach Fraser
We’re getting up to speed again quickly and the hard work in the pool this week was impressive. We were working on body roll for our swimming this week. It’s just easier to get through the water if you rotate through your pull — it’s a lot easier than ploughing through!
Please watch this video with your athlete –
Everyone is excited for the upcoming water polo tournament in Toronto. The coaches are returning focus to the egg-beater this week. It can be a difficult skill to master, but is essential to playing the game. Whip kick and egg-beater are fundamentals. We will be hosting special extra sessions for those athletes that need extra work on these two kicks.
Expect some grumbling from your athlete concerning all the upcoming leg work. If you have the time, please watch this video with your athlete, it’s the most important 7 or 8 minutes of footage on YouTube when it comes to water polo and explains why balance in the water is essential and what you need to achieve it.
