Highly recommended service. My kid’s coaches wanted to use Argo Swim Video, and I’m so glad they did. The coaches and swimmers loved it - crystal clear video, great engagement from the swimmers, great service. I loved getting to watch my kids on video and having the video on my phone. The pricing was excellent too. I’m sure that it’ll result in faster times for the kids and that we’ll be using the service again soon. Thanks Argo!read more

This is my son’s first swim video and we both find it to be very insightful and helpful. We see things in his strokes that we didn’t realize he was doing (or not doing whatever the case may be). This video seems to be very useful in helping to refine and improve his strokes and overall technique. Very helpful and well shot. Thank you!read more

I would recommend Argo Swim to anyone! They came to our pool and filmed my son Randall during his practice. The staff was super friendly, knowledgeable, and more than willing to explain the process. The best part, the video is a, "game changer" and Randy is already improving his back stroke because he's a visual learner and as we all know as parents, addicted to screens!read more
