Underwater Video Taping is Back!

UNDERWATER VIDEO TAPING IS BACK!

Register for a time slot this weekend or next on the Team Events tab! 

What:

We know that many young athletes are visual learners, and may not learn as quickly from having a coach tell them what to do or from standard trial and error.  One of the many services our competitive swimming team offers is underwater video filming sessions and stroke analysis.  We have contracted with a filming company who specializes in filming swimmers underwater, to provide our team members with crystal clear views of their strokes above and below.  This clear picture helps many swimmers self identify flaws in their strokes and makes coach feedback more powerful.

Swimmers will be filmed one at time via surface camera angle and underwater camera angle.  Swimmers will be asked to perform a 100 or 200 I.M. so that we get video of all four strokes.  Each swimmer takes approximately 2-3 minutes to film.

Once filming and editing of all videos has been completed, all swimmer videos will be uploaded onto Argo Swim's website for viewing.  We will also email the link and team password to view videos once it is made available.  Our coaching staff will also receive an iPad with all of our swimmers videos loaded onto it for viewing at practices, meets, and during our annual parent, swimmer, coach triangle meetings.
