  1. How to you improve the drive kick leg of the athlete.
    my athlete is leaving her leg up in the air and not driving it back to the toe board

    1. I tell my athletes to lead with the sweep leg, keeping it long with the toe up. As opposed to running away from the sweep leg and diving into the middle of the circle.

  2. thank you for the reply. do you have any drills that might help improve that drive swing leg technique?
