Junior & Youth Video Analysis
What we do?
Film your stroke in HD, capturing every action and movement above and below the water. Our Junior session is a cut down version of our full adult video analysis session. We keep it shorter as we find the attention span of the average youth swimmer is less than that of an adult. We do not offer adult sessions to swimmers under the age of 14. The video session we offer are only available for front crawl, we do not offer video for the other competitive strokes but can coach on a 1-2-1 basis, by arrangement only (please contact us before booking).
Who is this session for?
Our Junior & Youth video Analysis sessions are aimed at competitive club or Triathlon swimmers who want to progress their front crawl times by means of improved technique within the stroke.
These sessions are ideal for swim or triathlon club swimmers aged 10 years to 14 years old (over 14 years we recommend a full adult Video Analysis session). The swimmer should be near or above the standards set for Swim England County Championship level (see here), these ar not learn to swim sessions and the swimmer must have a good foundation stroke to be coached to make the most out of the session.
Please contact us if you are unsure if this session type will suit your swimmer before Booking.

It is also important to note that as part of this session we film the swimmer in the water. This footage is kept for our records (we use this to recap in future sessions) and is stored on Apple MacBook Laptop before being transferred to removable hard drive, and potentially backed up to Google Drive if required. The Video footage is never shared or distributed (other than to the parent at the time of a session) with any third parties without consent. If we do wish to use the footage for promotional purposes on social media etc we will ask for permission from the parent or guardian (and we will not be offended at all if this permission is refused). If you do not wish for any video footage or images to be stored by South West Swim then please advise us when asked in the session and we will delete this form our system once copied to your card on the day. Once deleted this video will not be retrievable in the event of loss of the USB card by the client.
