Swim faster by racing smarter

In swimming, more than any other sport, details are the difference between a good swimmer and a champion. So much depends on nearly indiscernible details. As a coach, how often have you known that something wasn't right but lacked a way to express that to your swimmers? Your swimmers are young, they have not had the experience you have had, unable to see the bigger picture they do not fully understand the importance of your feedback, but you know if you could show them concrete results of the minor changes they make, they would understand. What if you could analyze every aspect of the race, down to the last detail and then tabulate all of that information in one simple, easily understood report? This is the domain of electronic race analysis. For decades, this procedure was extremely time-consuming, and required involvement of large personnel. That has made race analysis available only to elite swimming, used solely for major international competitors. Now, Race Analyzer™ has made this capability available to coaches working at every level. No expensive gadgets needed, only a Windows based laptop or PC.

You can now empower your swimmers with detailed feedback about race performance equal to what previously was available only to the world-class athletes and coaches. Using information derived from Race Analyzer™, you will find new ways to sharpen your swimmers' competitive edge.

Don't be the last coach without this valuable tool! We believe this software can become the most important device in your coaching toolbox. Many other coaches and sports scientists already say that it is.
