How do I avoid getting water in my nose when swimming backstroke?

  1. Exhale through your nose longer and stronger

  2. Pull your arm up with your thumb or little finger first, to avoid scooping water over your face

  3. Don't rush with pulling your arm out of the water

  4. Wear nose clips to develop confidence with swimming on your back (and consider transitioning away from them if/when you feel more confident)
