WHAT AN ARGO VIDEO SESSION DOES FOR THE SWIMMER
Note: After you've paid for your swimmers' video you must click on the "schedule filming" link (up top) and confirm a filming time-slot.
Argo films over 3000 developmental, age-group, senior, masters, triathletes and collegiate swimmers across North America and now Europe. Proprietary underwater cameras and hi-speed filming of entire teams is coupled with professionally produced teaching videos to provide an effective path to better and faster swimming.
Within 2 weeks of on-site filming at Nitro the Argo analytics team will deliver a 10-minute teaching video to both the swimmer's (or parent's) cell phone and email address. Argo analysts use your coaches talking points throughout their "mark up" of the swimmer's video, ensuring continuity between what is being said on deck during practice and what the swimmer sees and hears during the teaching video. Loaded with voice, time-shift, slow motion, constant drawing and graphics, these personalised, effective teaching videos unpack the swimmers stroke mechanics while providing intensely positive feedback that improves both engagement and swim-life balance.
If you assume, as I do, that most kids learn visually, then most simply hear a fraction of what the coach is telling them about their stroke mechanics. This makes an important case for video-teaching. When the kid “sees” what the coach is telling them, there’s this “a-ha” moment that takes place. You can see the wheels turning, the gears grinding up in their heads as they put the video together with the tens of thousands of words the coach has spoken to them since the beginning. We see this “moment” happen after each and every video session Argo does for us. I would add that it’s always a special moment. Jon Siegel, Head Coach, Mariners
