I have been using the coaching tools within SwimOffice Pro since its release and I am amazed of all the great things I can do. I love the ability to quickly write workouts, record test sets, and record video.
With SwimOffice Pro, creating a workout is easy, seriously easy, and it's nice to be able to quickly pull up past sets that were well liked by the swimmers or made a difference in their training using the shopping cart functionality. This way I can build all new workouts in minutes.
Test Set Tracking
The test set tracker is a huge hit! The kids now love test sets, especially when they are able to see their average times and individual times immediately after practice.
When recording the test set you are able to assign lanes to each swimmer and have multiple swimmers in each lane. You, the coach, can decide how you will do the test set...nothing is pre-made. All you have to do is tap on the start button and say go and click on finish for each swimmer; it really is that simple. If a swimmer passes someone you just tap the arrow and the swimmer moves in front of the swimmer...it still calculates the time correctly at the finish. Amazing...this is a must see!
Once completed, reports allow you and the swimmer to see the data from each test set they have participated in. It's nice to see how they perform week to week or month to month. In reports you can see how much intensity you are doing for each swimmer and the ability to see what strokes or types of work you are doing during your practices. It is exciting to see swimmer progression as well as distances/ strokes/ workouts to improve upon.
