Y Swim - Backstroke Drills at Home

04 Jun 2020 - Y Swim

At the Y, all of our Learn to Swim programs have a strong emphasis on teaching proper technique.  

While many of us don’t have access to a pool at the moment, there are still things you can do to refine your swimming technique at home!

Check out these videos from our team, that show you drills and ways to practice swimming backstroke at home…no pool required! 

You will simply need:
•    A bench to lay on

Make sure you keep up your skills while at home, so when the pool re-opens you’re ready to jump right back in where you left off!
