I was doing some searching on YouTube for some swim training videos. Came across this one that seemed pretty good, the coach broke the stroke down into five “keys” to look for:

  1. Hand position entering the water: want hands entering at 1 and 11 on the clock.
  2. Hand glide position: focus on getting a glide with arm outstretched.
  3. Kick: Keep legs straight, kick from the hip.
  4. Stay long in the water: reduces drag and helps apply force with the pull.
  5. Hand exit position: finish stroke strong, pull hand out at lower part of hip, not at the waist.

Hopefully this helps. I know these are good pointers for me to keep in mind!
