It takes a different approach to shoulder injury than the article you referenced, which seems to be more focussed on the catch and propulsive phase. Properly executing the high elbow, early vertical forearm, will also alleviate the stress in the shoulder area.
Coach ToddE,
Thanks for the info. Very informative
