Whether you are a swimmer, a swim coach or a trainer, now you can learn the art of teaching stroke technique from one of the best stroke teachers in the world. In Go Swim Teaching Progressions, Steve Haufler shares his secrets for taking swimmers from floating to whole-stroke swimming, covering each of the four major strokes. Based on more than 30 years of observing the techniques of world-class swimmers, Steve's style of instruction stems from a unique understanding of how children and adults learn new skills. This video presents a simple 5-step teaching progression for each stroke -- butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. For each stroke, you'll learn Steve's "bag of tricks" for teaching the correct body position: kick, arm action, timing and breathing. Importantly, you will be able to see how these correct positions and motions look from multiple angles -- side, head-on, below, and rear – both from above and below the surface.
