Tier 1 uses an HD above/below water camera system, which greatly enhances our coaches ability to instruct swimmers on better stroke technique, turns, starts and finishing. Using 3, adjustable HD cameras, swimmers are able to watch themselves swim on a big screen from 3 separate angles simultaneously. Giving them a tremendous advantage over the competition in becoming a faster, smarter competitive swimmer.
"Coach, thank you so much for the diving lesson today! Aden was so excited he called his grandparents while we were walking to the car!!
I really appreciate your hard work and dedication."

"We wanted to thank you for helping Mackenzie with her swimming. She really enjoyed the lessons and your encouragement. She is swimming in an invitational this Sunday so hopefully she can apply some of the things you taught her. I am sure she will be back in the next few weeks."
"I just wanted to pass along that Taylor won her heat in an invitational last weekend. Her coach for the winter team made a point to come over and tell Taylor that she won because of her start and turn. It's something she never focused on until you helped her. Thanks for the help. Taylor also dropped 7 seconds in her 100 backstroke."
