Y catch up?

No, not ‘Why catch up?”, but ‘Y-catch up’

We tried a new drill this morning – Free style catch up, but with the hands no coming together, but going out in a Y shape before you. It remains a catch up in the sense that the lead hand awaits the entry of the other hand before the catch is taken and the stroke executed.

I much prefer it to the standard catch up, where the incoming hand touches the lead hand before that lead hand can begin the stroke. The standard one gets the hands wrong and with it, is in danger of allowing the rest f the body to be pulled out of line.

Three cheers for Jill, I will be trying it again.
