Swim Stroke Refinement Using Underwater Video

During this 45 minute session in the lap pool a coach will help you to identify changes to improve your swim stroke(s) using a submersible iPad. Underwater video will be taken and reviewed to provide immediate and detailed stroke feedback. After the lesson the video will be emailed to you with voiced over feedback related to the lesson.
