Coach Notes

The swim coach was asked to define any shorthand he or she used in this workout. Their notes should provide some additional context to this swimming workout.

TX Slingshots- Texas Slingshots. The swimmers swim to the middle of the pool, flip, build to the wall, flip and then sprint a 25

Breakout Kick- have the athletes kick 8-10 yards underwater, then SPRINT kick 8-10 years on the surface, then SPRINT the rest of the 25
