Strokes to L'se and Methods to Follovt !
to Acquire Speed.
The general rule may ba set down
that BO swimmer should attcmnt
speeding and I mean in practice as !
well as in racing until be can cover I
a quarter or a mile with a good stroke.
It matters not whether one alma at
becoming an all around competitor or
a specialist at the sprints, the same
rule obtains. Once the stroke has
been perfected, the chosen events may
be taken up, but even then it i the
best policy to alternato fast swimming
with easy stretches, at moderate pace,
under the watchful eye of the coach.
It is always advisable to limit the
number of time trials.
There are but two strokes which can j
be recommended to the racing man for
free style swimming, the crawl for dis
tances not exeeedins 220 yards and
both the crawl and the trudgoon for
longer Journeys. Some question is
still in the mind of many as to which
Is preferable for the latter events, but
In the writer's opinion based upon
the teachings of the past any set of
movements which affords best results
at the furlong will also prove best at
the longer courses after the swimmer
has accustomed his muscles to the
action by constant practice. Outing
