flip turn underwater imageIn the midst of a big change, I went to my niece, Olivia, for thoughts on transitions (i.e., flip turns).

Olivia says “an excellent flip turn has three parts….”

Auntie hears it’s best to break any transition down into manageable pieces.

Olivia says when changing both direction and stroke, “touch the wall … and take a breath when you touch.”

Auntie hears in a complicated change, knowing when to take care of yourself is essential.

I thought flip turns were scary. Olivia says nope, “no matter the depth, you can do the turn.”

Auntie hears it’s okay. You can do this.
