Dwyer Swim Team - Practice Details

Under Coach Lexie, the team did a 200-300 warm-up.

Group 1 then did 4 x 50 kick. Their main set was 100 individual medley followed by 4 x 25.

This set was done four times with the first set of 25s butterfly. The second set was backstroke. The third set was breaststroke. The fourth set was freestyle with a 100 easy afterward.

Lanes 2, 3 and 4 did 4 x 25 dolphin kick. Then 4 x 25 butterly + 1 x 25 butterfly with dive while racing a friend. Then the winners raced 1 x 25 while the others did 1 x 50 butterfly for time. They repeated the same set swimming freestyle.

At the end of practice, the kids did fun relays.

The kids were divided into 3 teams: the Salty Dogs, the Majestic Gazelles and the Everywheres.

The first relay had everyone swim a 50 freestyle. The second relay was individual medley (IM) where kids had to strategically chose who did butterfly, backstroke, or breaststroke.
