Swimming Analysis using Coaches Eye

In my last post I showed you how I attached an underwater camera to a pole simply using some tape. The results of the videos were pleasing, and I was able to analyse them using Coaches Eye once the videos were imported from the camera (using a camera connection kit for my IPad). Here is an example of a simple analysis of a swimmer demonstrating the freestyle technique.

Recently I attached my underwater camera to a pole (see picture) so I could import the videos into Coaches Eye to analyse the swimming strokes. This worked well walking up and down the side of the pool taking the videos. It also gave me the option of giving the students instant video feedback.
