Smart Fish Method New Versa to Lear for Ring Around The Rosie

CHECK OUT A NEW VERSE FOR RING AROUND THE ROSIE…
(Eventually, maybe we can change the words)
* First version of the second verse:
… Feel the lovely sunshine,
… Flows all around
… Hop a little, Hop…
… Right Off the ground.
Repeat using “Jump”, instead of “Hop”
… Feel the lovely sunshine,
… Flows all around
… Jump a little, Jump…
… Right Off the ground.

Smart Fish Method No-Breath Freestyle, Stopping to Take Breaths Between Sets

* This is a test to see if 4 year old Landon is able to do No-Breath Sticky Arms and Flutter Kicking independently. Most of his lesson involves “Hands-On” instruction with a teacher in the pool.
* Landon has improved his “No-Breath Sticky/Switch High Arms” and head positioning. Before adding Breath Recovery, he must still improve his kick so that he kicks non-stop with long legs (using his whole leg to move the water.)
* These sets of No-Breath High Arms can be done between platforms, from the teacher to the wall (or steps), across a shallow pool (standing up when needing to breathe), or across a deep pool, near the wall or lane line, so that the student is able to stop and hang on the wall or lane line to breathe, before doing the next set of No-Breath High Arms.
* Smart Fish Method students learn Freestyle AFTER mastering a confident Kick & Roll Swim with lateral breath recovery.

* STEP 1: teach proper Swim Breathing (exhale out the nose underwater, inhale one single breath through the mouth above the water.) Progress from this to lateral Quick Breath Swim-Breathing.
* STEP 2: work on kick and head positioning: SWORDFISH KICK … LONG WARRIOR KICK.
* STEP 3: Logan does a GREAT WARRIOR PUSH-OFF START off the steps. Landon was taught to begin the drill in Long Warrior Kick position: “One arm forward, one arm back – head down.”
* STEP 4: N0-Breath Sticky Arms … swim an achievable distance without a breath focusing only on Sticky/Switch High Arms, Legs, and head positioning.
* STEP 5: Review Swim-Breathing and lateral Quick Breathing
* STEP 6: Long Warrior with lateral Quick Breathing
* STEP 7 through 11… SFM Grade 8 Long Warrior Freestyle drills with arms, legs, and lateral Quick Breathing.
—-Notice that even a slight elevation of Logan’s head compromises his ability to do the drill. Youngsters have proportionately large heads, so it affects their swim posture more than an that of an adult.
— Notice that Logan began and ended his second lap of this drill in Long Warrior Kick position. “Good work Landon… you didn’t even need your teacher to remind you to do that.”

Smart Fish Method WD #1 Long Warrior & Quick Breathing, with Puddle Jumpers, 3 at a time

*. The Puddle Jumpers (under the hips & under the hands) can be clipped together, so that the students are more easily drilled and taught at the same time, as a semi-private.

*. Notice where the students have their right arms positioned on the puddle jumpers that are under their hips, so that they are not able to do the typical extra dog paddle pull while rotating to breathe.

* When the hips and arm are “forced” to be elevated to the surface like this, it influences the head position to be flatter, It is more comfortable to do it correctly.

*. These Grade 7/8 students have already been taught to do the first drills of this series (Swordfish Kick, Warrior Kick, & Quick Swim-Breathing. Otherwise, this drill would be more difficult.
