While channel swimmers, distance swimmers and elite swimmers train exceedingly hard, pushing themselves lap after lap and mile after mile in the pool and open water, we always find it is a pleasure when an adult swimming coach or masters swimming coach calls for casual social kicking in their practices.

Social kick is easy kicking done with a kick board with friends and teammates. Social kicking is usually done after a hard main set and the bulk of a pool workout is over. After the hard-charging, aerobically-challenging tough stuff is over and the hard-nosed, gut-busting ambiance of intensity is completed, masters swimmers – with the coach’s acquiescence – can then grab their kick boards and chat in a nice easy, low-stress kicking set.
