Three-time Olympic Coach, five-time NCAA Coach of the Year, and Auburn University Head Men's and Women's Swim Coach Richard Quick believes that it is essential for any successful backstroker to establish a sound understanding and feel for the proper body position in the water. Beginning his presentation with a review of posture, line and balance essentials, Quick "builds" the backstroke from the inside out sharing innovative drills and technique tips for proper hand placement, underwater pull and recovery. Throughout these drills, Quick repeatedly stresses the importance of swimming the backstroke on the side and driving the stroke from the hips. Emphasizing a "tight, fast, electric kick", Quick and his young swimmers demonstrate each drill and how easily you can incorporate them into your program. Quick also shares common stroke faults and provides invaluable tips to assure proper stroke mechanics. 49 minutes. 2006. DVD.
