Abstract

The most efficient swimming' comes when an athlete's stroke is symmetrical. However, research on symmetry in swimming kicking is lacking. The way of optimising performance for young learners is to develop and establish appropriate movement patterns. This process should begin from early in the development of the skill because inappropriate movement patterns may be difficult to change once they have become established by the individual as a preferred movement pattern (Sanders and Myers, 2005). The purpose of this study was to investigate symmetry of flutter kicking in swimming.
