– If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands.

– Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, on the water.

– If you’re happy and you know it, kick your feet. If you’re happy and you know it, kick you’re feet. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If youre happy and you know it kick you’re feet…

– Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, just like a sea otter. Lean back on the water, on the water.

– EVERYONE COME BACK TO THE CASTLE.. EVERYONE PUT YOUR HANDS UP:

– If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. YAY !

Streamline Break Out Instruction

Smart Fish Method Stroke level students and pre-comp swimmers (who have mastered Warrior Freeestyle) should do a proper streamline push- off from the wall at the start of every lap.

– Horizontal posture,
– Arms reaching,
– Head down and flat.
– Strong Kick (except Breaststroke)

This needs to become a habit for them, so that when the teacher or coach explains the next drill, he will not have to remind them to streamline push-off the wall. Typically, the students will focus and remember only the last thing they are told. If that last command is the reminder to streamline off the wall, do not be surprised if all the instructions regarding the drill are completely forgotten.

Therefore, take time to simply teach the streamline and break-out to all SFM stroke school levels. Drill the Skill until it becomes a habit, so that they will not have to be reminded of this requirement in the future.

There is no need to do full laps when first teaching this skill. Notice how the coach uses the kick-stick to insure that the student streamlines long enough.

Teach one thing at a time and add-on the instruction to ahold off on recovering for a breath until after at least the first two or three pulls. Here at Waterside Swim School we teach the world renowned Smartfish Method. We offer private, group and competitive swim education to all ages. Our Method is constantly evolving with the newest technology and swim related research. Our specialty is the art of baby swimming and safety, but our Method is designed to accommodate all ages, even adults. We take great pride in what we do here and love showing the world the priceless gift of knowing how to swim.

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.
