Learning to Swim the fly?

Post by Jordon Catalan » Sun, 09 Jun 1996 04:00:00


I swim for fitness frequently (usually 5+ times a week) and both my
***stroke and my freestyle are not bad.

I'm actually interested in trying to learn the Butterfly, but have no idea
where to start.  

I've sort've figured out the dolphin kick, but it definitely needs work and
I really have no idea what the timing of the stroke should be.

Suggestions?  Is there a good book or something on the topic?

There are plenty of good books, but the best way should be to swim with
others who know how to do it and a coach.  Masters swimming is
probably best.

If you can video tape your stroke, review it and compare to some of the
world class athletes you will do much better than any book could ever
help.
