Many of you have already taken part in the FINA Technical Rules updates and are aware of the recent changes. However, I have been asked that you draw the attention of any Masters swimmers that you know of to the changes made to the Masters Rules with reference to the Butterfly.
The new rule is included below.
MSW 3.10 A breaststroke kicking movement is permitted for butterfly.
Only one breaststroke kick is permitted per arm pull except that a single breaststroke kick is permitted prior to the turn and the finish without an arm pull. After the start and after each turn, a single breaststroke kick is permitted prior to the first arm pull.
