Swimming Utensils

Snorkel

The Swimmer’s Snorkel allows swimmers the ability to focus on stroke technique without the interruption of turning your head to breath. Allowing for a full range of motion this tool can be used for all strokes. Relax in the water and maintain body alignment to improve stroke efficiency.

Monofins

Learn to dolphin kick with the Foil Body Motion developed and made popular by Coach Bob Gillett. Using the Foil Body Motion a swimmer can use his or her entire body to create a powerful and undulating dolphin kick through the water. The Foil Monofin promotes an equal use of down and up kicks for propulsion throughout the entire dolphin kick movement by teaching the Foil technique and increasing the swimmer’s core and leg strength. For best results while learning the Foil Body Motion, try kicking on your side while using the Foil Monofin.

The Bolster Paddles

The Bolster Paddles promotes an early vertical forearm that uses the entire forearm and hand during the pull. Perfecting this technique with the Bolster Paddles encourages a high elbow and will lead to more efficient swimming. The Bolster Paddles are also a great way to build upper body strength. The wide paddle design offers resistance throughout the pull and can be applied to all four strokes. Using the Bolster Paddles overtime will improve entry, catch technique, pull and recovery.
