Textbooks? Not exactly, and not required, but highly recommended. Especially for the level 2 programs.

Optional DVDs

In the level 2 programs, each lesson has a technique focus. Many of these are drawn from a number of DVDs created by Glenn Mills and Barbara Hummel of GoSwim.tv. The ones I use most often for examples during the classes are:

  • Go Swim Freestyle with Karlyn Pipes-Neilsen
  • Go Swim All Strokes with Kaitlin Sandeno & Erik Vendt
  • Go Swim Freestyle with Roland Schoeman
  • Go Swim Freestyle with Kara Lynn Joyce

Optional Reading

For all Breakwater Freestyle programs, the kicking drill progression that we will follow was inspired by a series of articles written by Coach Emmett Hines of H2Ouston Swims. To read the articles on his website, click: H2Ouston Swims, click on the Articles button, and read the set of three articles entitled Bottom-Up Swimming. (Actually, read all of his stuff if you have the time - he is a great coach and a very entertaining writer.)
