Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Swimming Instructor, Phillip Toriello, teaches how to do the butterfly stroke turns, which are an open turn like those used with the breaststroke.

Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village. I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Butterfly Turns: Butterfly turns are basically comprised of an open turn, much like the breaststroke, and the backstroke open turns. Basically, you'll come into the wall, arms out, stretching, leaning towards the wall. You don't want to take another mini stroke right here. You're going to take one stroke, kick into the wall. Your hands will touch both at the same time, and this is important. Both of your hands must touch the wall. You can't have a one-hand touch. If you perform a one-hand touch in a race environment, you will be disqualified so it's imperative that both hands come into the wall, your feet come underneath you, left arm down, right arm over, streamline off the wall, and dolphin kicking as far as you can go but, again, not breaking that 15-meter mark. If you dolphin kick off your turn more than 15 meters, you will be disqualified."
