How to do a relay start. For competitive swimming


Doing good relay starts can give your team a big advantage.
The relay start is all about timing and momentum. 
To make it simple let’s divide it in three parts: 

1- The follow
2- The arms
3- The legs

This takes a lot of collaborative practice to master. The more time you spend with it, the more confident the whole relay will be and the faster you’ll be. 

This is by far the fastest start in swimming, but individually your time will not be official, so make sure to have fun doing it and practice hard. Your teammates will appreciate it. 

Thanks for watching! Swim fast!
