Proper Open Turns
Perform Proper Open Turns - Save a Life! We will be moving towards sharing a lane with one other person shortly. In preparation for that, we want you to view videos that show an incorrect open turn vs. using good technique. Notice during the incorrect turn, the swimmer breathes towards the swimmer on the wall, who has to shield themselves from the exhale of breath. During a proper turn, the swimmer's head remains still, the exhale is done underwater, and the breath is taken when leaving the wall. The swimmer on the wall can further protect themselves by turning away from the swimmer executing the turn.
