Tennis Ball IM Technique & Sprint Set

Ryan Woodruff
Head Coach
Lynchburg YMCA

The purpose of this set is promote kinesthetic awareness and a better “catch” in all strokes combined with a bit of speed.  We used tennis balls held in the palm of the hand to take away the ability to pull with the hand surface.  Swimmers enjoyed the effect of the tennis balls when they went back to an open hand.
