Your Weekly Swim Tip: Backstroke Flip Turns + Swim Meet Nutrition

Sigma Swimming
Hi Swim Team and Adult Fitness Swimmers,
In addition to any location-specific info you receive, we like to provide you with some weekly general info/education that is related to your Swim Team and Fitness Swimming experience.

Fact of the week: Flip turns are not just a more efficient way to transition from one direction to another. Flip turns also transfer momentum/speed. If a swimmer enters the turn fast and executes the turn properly, the swimmer can carry much of that speed to the next leg of the swim. 
How does my swimmer move up? Our  group promotion standards are your guide to growing and graduating! Promotion times can be achieved in practice or swim meets. We prefer to see them happen at a swim meet!
Have a wonderful weekend!
