Sculling - Version 2

Like version 1 of the sculling set of drills, version 2 also helps you develop a good "feel for the water" but this time it focuses on the transition from the catch phase of your stroke into the pull phase.  Common stroke flaws at this part of the stroke are pulling through too wide or pulling through with a straight arm.  In Sculling Version 2, you will keep your elbow fixed but move your "paddle" (i.e. your elbow to your fingertips) outwards and then inwards.  In other words, you are changing your elbow angle to generate the sculling action.  You should feel a light pressure from the water against your wrists and palms.  Try 10m-15m of the drill, moving straight into freestyle.  Always use a pull buoy with sculling drills.
