Swim With The Tide!

My Students

The students on the swim team are extremely hard working, consistent and dedicated. Some of the swimmers knew how to swim before joining the team while others are learning not just how to compete but the proper technique to be successful in the water.

This is not your typical team filled with swimmers that have been around the sport their whole life.

Most of the swimmers are coming with little to no experience. They require more time and support to prep them for competition and learning how to maneuver safely in the water.

My swimmers greatly benefit from the proper training equipment such as snorkels, fins, paddles, and pull buoys to be successful and confident in the water.

My Project

The equipment I am requesting for the Roll Tide Swim Team will allow the swimmers to properly work on their technique. The use of hand paddles will help the swimmers get a proper feel of how important hand placement and power is to their stroke. The pull buoys will help the swimmers truly focus on their upper body strength in the water by elevating their legs while they pull. While the hand paddles are used to work on the swimmers stroke, the fins are used to help increase power and speed with their kicking. Kicking and body rotation are some of the most important but also difficult skills to learn which is why using the snorkel will be a huge help!
