Well...polo players among others. It would depend a great deal on the coach and strength coach. A more conventional-minded coach probably wouldn't do it...but someone willing to push the bounds a little bit would. It's the kind of thing that you'd do during the swimming portion of practice, definitely not during the drills/scrimmage part. Although whenever I'd throw a bad pass my coach would make me hit the deck and do pushups.

Losing the lane...that can happen. If someone jumps in my lane when I'm on the deck, I just get right back in when I'm done on dry land and start swimming again. Pretty soon people realize that you're getting in and out and they leave you the lane if they see you at one end. It's either that or they stay in the lane and deal with the wake ;)
