I'm a new swimmer, with a rare chance to swim in a competition pool over the holidays. Any tips on track starts? Having never tried one before, my first thought is to not embarass myself. But with a few days to practice I'd like to think I could learn something. Could I? Any advice will be appreciated.

I need to learn these too, I'm just afraid of reinjuring my shoulder from a dislocation.

I just wrote a piece on track starts, specifically the slingshot start and posted on our website, www.theraceclub.com, under Interactive, then Secret Tips. Hope you enjoy.

I love those track starting blocks in Sweden at The World Cup...Ahelee, can you order those for Nadadores?

As an older master swimmer, I have used the 2 foot at the edge for so long it's going to be tough to change my start. This season, I will give it a try in meets.
