|Underwater Video Analysis is one of the most under utilized tools in
competitive swimming. At the upper ranks (NCCA, National Teams, etc.)
video taping is used extensively. Examples: At USC, Coach Mark Schubert
uses a fulltime coach to capture and analyze each swimmer in practice daily
so his swimmers practice and imprint correct technique. At many of the
National Meets the USA Swimming head video stroke technician Russell
Mark video tapes the swimmer during prelims in hopes of find the extra edge
before their finals swim! In short â€“ this feedback to the athlete is a huge
competitive advantage for the those who use it .
Over the last few years Iâ€™ve video taped myriad swimmers and the
positive results have been far better than I or the swimmers could have ever
imagined. If you desire to get to the next level in swimming - video analysis is
the staring point.
