Brad Hopkins

Hello, I’m Brad Hopkins I’m a Son, Husband, Father, swimmer, runner, professional photographer & videographer, autodidact engineer and lifelong inventor. Over the last 15 years, I’ve met a lot of swim Coaches from summer league volunteers to Olympic level gurus and mentors. Once we start talking about what they’re up to and the challenges they face, the conversation always ends up here: “I’m working with my group to taper into Champs and it’s such a challenge. The kids are all staring at their phones and I can’t really tell if they’re hearing me or not. I spend so much time talking and talking, repeating my instructions over and over and having them swim the same sets and drills. They say they’re listening; I’m just not sure my words are being translated into muscle memory. I’m afraid that, at worst, I’m wasting time and at best we’re missing opportunities for sustained, organic growth.” After hearing the same story over and over, the aha moment happened. I figured out how we can help our swimmers master new techniques and improve their mechanics, faster and more efficiently than ever before. Apple has paved the way for our teaching system with their iOS devices and network. Using the Apple TV to bridge between and iPad-iPhone and enormous TV is quite simple. Millions of people do this in their living rooms every day. And it works. So now we hang one or more giant screens on your pool wall and connect all your iOS devices to it. Simple and effective. My goal is to put comprehensive over-under video of every swimmer in the hands of every Coach in this Country.

We’re enthusiastic about underwater videography, and often on the lookout for interesting new developments in the technology. Recently, we found this video showing an unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV)—more commonly referred to as a drone—and we have to say it’s pretty cool.
