There are 2 different positions for crawl stroke technique instruction and for training (plus one additional position for special backstroke drills). Two positions enhances the ability of the swimmer to adapt to the "feel" or sense perception of the water on the hand. This is accomplished without changing the tubing position on the paddle. The swimmer only reverses the position of the paddle on the hand for a simple and quick stroking adjustment. The tapered end frontal position places the paddle further forward on the hand. This changes the "feel" adaptation, and teaches the hand, wrist, elbow order of entry. It also encourages a downward sweep of the hand and high elbow position to continually reach "new" water in the crawl stroke. A downward sweep is more efficient than the older concept of lateral sweeps. All of my paddles are holed paddles with the number and size of the holes optimum for reducing joint stress.

Position #1

The "normal" position for swimming, pulling, and drill work. It is the "normal" position for power and speed swimming. Recomended in all four strokes.

Position #2

This reversal of the ends of the paddle changes the paddle position on the hand. The tapered end of the paddle is placed more forward. This position encourages the swimmer to press down into the catch position, getting the wrist over the hand and the elbow over the wrist. The result--a more efficient entry and catch. Recommended in all four strokes as in position #1.

Position #3

This is a special position for backstroke training. This position encourages little-finger entry and a deeper catch. Recommended for backstroke technique training.
