When I walked into practice Longhorn Aquatics Coach, Doug Rusk had the team doing a timed 15 M SDK set, 25 repeats on an easy interval, odds easy evens fast for time
he asked me what my 15 M SDK times were to bench mark against his kids so I said let me warm up and lets find out. (details below)

    Ande - What does the term "roll start" mean?
    Nice practice 100 back btw! 54 in practice. That's quick.

    Hey Karl,
    a roll start is where you dive off the side from a roll
    meaning the timer starts the watch when the swimmers feet leave the side or block
