Here’s what to do:
Take a video of your swimming with a phone/camera above the water, or gopro below the water and upload it to YouTube or Vimeo,
The best positioning for your video analysis are in the following 4 camera view points with up to 60 second videos in each view:
Front view above water - 1-2 feet underwater
Front view under water - close to the surface
Side view above - close to the surface
Side view below - 2-3 feet below the surface
Make sure when you're filming the swimmer that the camera angle is set to 90 degrees either to the side or in front of the swimmer. Keep the camera as still as possible when filming, ie no lateral tilt or tilting forwards or backwards. You can use a phone on a pole for shots filmed above the water if thats easier for you.
If you're using a Gopro or your phone to take the video footage you'll need to keep the swimmer in close view, i.e. much closer than you would presume. This would be within a couple of feet as the lens viewing angle is quite small, but very clear once in the right position. Try this a few times to test to ensure you get the best view.
You can also use the Coaches Eye app on your smartphone if you prefer and send us a link via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Front Crawl Technique Video Analysis Examples
Front Crawl Technique Analysis 1:
In this video the swimmer is crossing over the midline of their body in the catch and pull phases. This will be causing a snaking action in the body and a scissor kick motion with the legs, as these extra movements try o counter the initial cross over.
As Newtons 3rd law states: "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction" This is very true here.
Pinch the shoulder blades closer together swim with the hands a bt wider so they track more from the shoulder joint to the hip and then thigh to exit.
Pull on a rope
Long doggie paddle
Single arm fist with pull buoy
Sculling window wipers
Select below how many minutes you would like analysed, upload your video and we'll do all the rest.
Front crawl technique Analysis 2:
In this video the swimmer is experiencing quite a lot of stroke flaws which need correction. There is over rotation of the hips and for breathing, the head is rolling and turnin to breath, causing the hips to drop and body to feel unbalanced. Theres also a straight arm catch and pull phase underwater, causing a missing of the catch and pull phases, and a slightscissor kicking of the legs.
Roll from the hips 45-60 degrees each side, keep the head still so the body rolls on a long axis from head to feet. Acheive an early vertical forearm to gain a better purchase on the water. Keep feet closer together.
Bodyroll 45 degrees
Single goggle eye breathing
Swim on shoulder
Reach over a barrel
Single arm unco (passive arm by side)
