How can the FINIS Junior Snorkel help your swimming?
Having oxygen on tap makes swimming so much easier... which is why FINIS invented the Junior Swimmer's Snorkel. There is a lot to co-ordinate when you first start swimming seriously. Remembering all the different elements of technique at the same time as timing breathing can be daunting. FINIS Junior Swimmer's Snorkel lets young swimmers breathe any time so they can focus on all that other stuff and learn to simply swim better. It's a genius device that works a treat for freestyle, butterfly, and breaststroke and it even stays put for flipturns.
Here's why you should add the FINIS Junior Swimmer's Snorkel to your swim kit:
Using the FINIS Junior Swimmer's Snorkel means you are not always breathing on your dominant side so your stroke is naturally more balanced.
This is key for evening out the workload across both sides of the body to avoid over-loading, injury and strain like swimmer's shoulder.
Swimmers naturally pick their head up when swimming freestyle and youngsters are even more likely to pop up to check on their progress. Swimming with our faces pointed at the bottom of a pool goes against our natural instinct to keep an eye on where we are going. It’s not so much a bad habit as a matter of over-riding a human safety mechanism.
While using a snorkel won’t completely remove the need to pop up to find the wall, it does encourage swimmers to keep looking down.
Swimmers who rock their heads from side to side while swimming freestyle are in for a soggy surprise. Turning your head will dunk the tip of the snorkel into the water and it becomes like a straw.
This means a snorkel can help correct a wandering head and reinforce a straight-line from the top of your head to your ankles.
One of the most important aspects of fast swimming is keeping a straight body-line in the water. This includes keeping a straight head—something that the snorkel forces on you. It instills that propulsion comes from rotation of your hips and shoulders, and not wiggling your head around.
The comfortable mouthpiece is made from soft, flexible medical-grade silicone and there is an adjustable head bracket for quick strap adjustments and universal fit. There is also a one-way purge valve to allow water out of tube.
