Stroke Builder is the definitive guide to swimming front crawl and correcting faults using swimming drills. The app features videos narrated by our own Great Britain Olympic triathlon coach Dan Salcedo. It is an invaluable tool for developing swimmers and coaches alike.
To get you started the free app contains the 4 full videos. The rest of the content is offered as In-App purchases. This content is split into 3 sections called the Stroke Builder, Fault Fixer and Drills Database. You can choose to purchase the section that suits your current level of swimming or get all 3 to complete this comprehensive guide to front crawl.
Intermediate swimmers will benefit from the Fault Fixer and Drills Database to help them fix issues with their stroke and provide variety to their training sessions.
Coaches can use all the sections as a demonstration tool to show correct technique to their swimmers.
