Definitions for "Sprints"
used in collegiate competition, this type of race features a course which is 2000 meters long, usually with four to six unmarked or buoyed lanes and a floating or staked start.
A short timing often used to practice a behavior at high speeds. Sprints for 10, 15 or 30 seconds, for example, can be used to help the learner get "unstuck" from a locked rate.
