Smart Fish Method Build Your Stroke Count Progression From Flags to Wall

*. This swimmer hit his head on the wall during Backstroke Practice. He hit it especially hard because, he was swimming fast with fins.
*. Hitting the wall hard on Backstroke is dangerous. Coaches must warn them of the potential of crashing into the wall. Teach them how to use THE BACKSTROKE FLAGS.
*. Because he is wearing fins, he can’t do the usual stroke count. Therefore, Ginny instructed all the kids to only do a couple strokes after the flags, followed by a one-arm-up kick until reaching the wall.
*. Teach Backstroke Stroke Count from the flags: All Backstroke flags should be 15 feet from the wall. Everyone has their own personal stroke count. It has to do with their body size and arm length, kick and pull strength, speed and stroke technique.

This video describes the UNIQUE SMART FISH METHOD BACKSTROKE FINISH INSTRUCTION: Build your stroke count Progression from the flags.
* AFTER PASSING FROM THE FLAGS TO THE WALL:
STEP 1: One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
STEP 2: Two Pulls + One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
STEP 3: Four Pulls + One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
STEP 4: Six Pulls + One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
STEP 5: Eight Pulls + One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
STEP 6: Nine Pulls + One-Arm-Up Kick to the wall
The first time he did this with nine pulls, he turned over on his tummy before he touched the wall. He was told to NEVER do that when he FINISHES his backstroke race, or he will be disqualified… No Ribbon.
He tried again and did it correctly the second time.
