Triathletes who struggle with swimming technique or pool boredom should welcome a new training tool to their gear bag, Drill Deck This simple but effective product relies on well documented swim drills and a bit of chance to improve several aspects of freestyle swim form. Drill Deck is now available for purchase at for a purchase price of $29.99.

Swim drills aren’t difficult to find, but they may be difficult to remember once in the pool. And while drills are typically a staple of coached workouts, not every triathlete works with a coach. Drill Deck solves this information gap by putting over 30 swim drills at the athlete's fingertips in a small, convenient, and pool-friendly package.

Waterproof skill cards focused on speed, body position, breathing, stroke, kick, and open water sighting describe the drills. But the cards are only half of the package. Athletes are encouraged to push past their comfort zone with a mix of both drills and laps determined by a draw of cards and a roll of dice, conveniently packaged for poolside use.

While Drill Deck is clearly built to aid swim technique, thereby reducing fatigue and improving overall finish times, it is also meant for fun. Triathlon is, for most, a hobbyist sport. But with all of the performance gear, coaching, nutrition advice, and brand tattoos, it is easy to start taking it all a bit seriously. Drill Deck is also a reminder to relax and have a little fun with your triathlon training.

“People tri for different reasons. For many, I think it’s a tangled web of complex reasons. I certainly can’t describe what drives me in any tangible way. But for those who can embrace the joy and relax into the process, this can be a great tool,” explains creator and founder Anja Smith. Regular use of the product over the course of just one triathlon season recently improved her 100 meter pool average by several seconds. She credits the drills for addressing “a few basic issues with my form, especially my stroke.”

Experts agree that along with drills, the best way to improve swim fitness is time in the pool. Fortunately, Drill Deck helps with this as well. “Swim training doesn’t have to be a chore,” Smith says. “Now my pool time is both more focused and more fun.” While Drill Deck is described as a game, the only real way to win is by improving performance.

More information about Drill Deck is available at, where the product is immediately available for purchase. There is currently a promotion for free shipping with discount code “PR2017” on the first 100 orders in the United States. For those who would prefer to preview the drills, the entire collection is available on the website under the Drills section. You can follow Drill Deck on both Facebook and Instagram for regular updates as well.
