Argo Swim Video transforms the way you train, the way you perform, and the way you win. Together, we’re revolutionizing swim club culture. And bringing fun and engagement to it!
Teaching With Video
The ASV system provides powerful visual feedback enhancing Coach-Swimmer communication, accelerating learning and significantly improving swim-life balance. Boost performance and crank up the fun when you bring the team together with video teaching!
How It Works
We Film Your Swimmers
We film your swimmers three times per year, during practice, with minimal disruption, at a rate of 20 swimmers per hour. Alternately, you may set up a special “filming day” on a weekend. All of our programs use a 3-visit approach to the year giving Coaches and athletes fresh video once every 4 months. Using an edge lane, your ASV film-tech rolls along with each swimmer, recording HD video from both above and below water simultaneously. Swimmers are encouraged to swim at race pace in order to gain maximum learning benefit from fatigue-induced stroke errors.
We Deliver A Coaching System
All program choices include a free iPad Pro and a free 65″ wall-mounted TV with Apple TV. Our system is based exclusively on the Apple iOS, utilising Apple AirPlay (wifi not required) for the wireless connection between iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and a giant screen. Use of these devices enables daily in-water instruction with instant replay. Use our video (shot every 4 months) or your video (shot every day). With our system, there is no more time-wasting out-of-water, one-to-one review sessions that take 20 minutes per kid and achieve little lasting benefit. Teach in 20-second micro-sessions during their set breaks throughout each and every practice.
Our VideoVault Is Secure
Argo Swim Video isn’t just good for some of your swimmers; it’s good for your entire team. Senior swimmers may take delivery of their video on their phones via text message, greatly improving their view-rate. Within a week of your first video session, swimmers and their families may view, share and download their video from our website without restriction. Access is login-protected and monitored. When your swimmers and their teammates start sharing tips and swapping videos, there’s no limit to the ways they can help each other improve. They study themselves and their peers—replicating strengths and noting weaknesses. Give your swimmers a pat on the back for a job well done. This helps build your team’s character and cohesion. Your video remains active, secure, and accessible for the duration of your contact.
Before Your Filming Session
Pick your program, sign your contract, pay your deposit and schedule your first filming dates. We then ship the TV mount for you to install. We will not come to your pool to film unless the TV mount is up. One week from your first session, our film tech forwards a prep sheet and calls to go over simple details. On filming day, film-tech arrives at the pool an hour early to set up camera and prepare to begin filming. We film at practice all the time and it really isn’t much of a disruption. The loss of a lane to our filming can be challenging but it’s worth it!
What Others Are Saying
“If you assume, as I do, that most kids learn visually, then most simply don’t hear what the coach is telling them about their stroke mechanics—which makes an important case for hand-held, slow-motion video. When the kid “sees” what the coach is telling them, there’s this “aha moment” that takes place. We can see it in just one week.”
