  • What would be the correct size for a 5 year old? Do you'll have one with 2 dots instead of 3 dots

    In order to determine the proper size  I'd recommend getting child's Hand Circumference and comparing it to the sizing chart. This is the only one we carry like this.

    As a swimmer, swim coach (ASCS certified), and parent (of 2 age group swimmers), I can't fathom why your 5 year old would need to be using paddles. There is no reason at your childs age that they should be swimming with this type of training aide. The only things paddles would do for a 5yo are put excessive stress on their should joints and be a distraction for developing proper technique. I would be hesitant to have a child younger than 10 years old (possibly even 12 years old) using paddles.

    5 Review Stars By Bob STARKEY

    I swim only freestyle/crawl.  I have long used the old Streamliner/freestyle paddles to improve my tech.  I got these to also work with the scull motion.  It seems to be a constant change in theory whether you should be using your arms as oars or be a propellor.  They fit loose in my hand and if my entry is bad, they tend to slip, as named, forcing me to correct my hand position - by instinct when i did it wrong.  The only problem is that you can easily scull your hands too far in, across your centerline.  Nothing in their design will help that.  Incidentally, our locale Y age group coach highly recommends them,  He was a 1600 FS swimmer in college.

    I am using them with my swimmers to emphasis the "lift" gained by a proper sweep around the corner in the BS pull. For me, I can feel the lift pressure on my fingers much better. I don't care about feeling water; I want to feel the pressure my sweep is creating.
    I don't know how to exploit them for FLY or BK yet. Any hints? Any video?
