What Are the Benefits of Swim Coaching?

Anyone who is involved in swimming competitively likely understands the importance of being coached properly.  While you will likely be able to get good coaching at your school or league, it is also a good idea to get focused, individualized training.

Here are some of the great benefits that you can receive from getting one-on-one instruction from a coach.

Personalization is Key

The very fact that the training will be personalized to you is a huge benefit.  The coach of a swim team generally has his or her hands full because he or she is trying to focus on so many swimmers.  However, and individual coach can focus on all of your skills and flaws in order to help you to become the best you can be.

When it all comes down to it, there is no substitute for one-on-one instruction.

Basic and Advanced Video Analysis

A coach can only see so much from being above the water.  A lot of your technique can only be seen under the water, and that is why swim video analysis can be a huge benefit for swim students. 

There are different types of video analysis, so you will want to find out whether your coach offers just basic or advanced video analysis.  Either way, you will definitely see a huge benefit by having this done for you.

College Placement

Most coaches who provide video analysis services will also be able to use the videos that they take of you to help you get placed onto a college swim team.  This is hugely beneficial for those who are hoping to get a swimming scholarship to a college.

With all of these benefits, it is no wonder that more and more swimmers are seeking personalized training and instruction.
