USA Swimming Open Water Swimming Video

Under the leadership of USA Swimming, all 2,800 swim clubs registered with USA Swimming will receive a nice open water swimming Christmas present. Each team will receive a USA Swimming Open Water Swimming DVD that covers all aspects of competitive open water swimming.

The video, currently in post-production, was shot at the USA Swimming National Open Water Select Camp and the Open Water Festival that included the National 5K and 10K Championships and Florida Junior Olympic meet in Ft. Myers, Florida.

The educational video covers in-pool training for open water swimming, open water swimming drills and skills, drafting, feeding, starts, finishes, buoy turns, setting up an open water race and safety.

Photo shows the top female open water swimmers at the 2007 USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships, all of whom have participated in the USA Swimming National Open Water Select Camps where the best pool distance swimmers are given an opportunity to receive a comprehensive and intense introduction to open water swimming.

USA Swimming officials stated that the DVDs will be mailed to the 2,800 USA Swimming teams in January. However, the price and method of distribution to those outside of USA Swimming teams are still being worked out internally. When the information is available, we will report it.
