Coaching Tools Admin - Videographer

Coaching Tools lets you not only tie a video recording to a swim meet, you can tie it to specific swimmers, heats and lanes. Tap a button to advance to the next heat and keep going. Note this only works when a meet is in SwimOffice and is a TouchPad meet or has an ev3 file attached. Here is how.

  1. In OnDeck, tap Menu > Coaching Tools > Video Producer.
  2. Tap Swim Meet.
  3. Tap a swim meet that is happening today. (If you pick a past meet, you will not be able to tie it to events and swimmers.)
  4. If there are unseeded swimmers in the current event and heat (or no swimmers in the event), a dialog will alert you and you can tap Setup to seed them, or Later to skip.

    1. Tap ---/-- in the H/L column to assign each swimmer to a heat and lane. This works just like the Run Meet function in OnDeck.
      Assign heats/lanes
    2. Tap SAVE when finished, then tap < in the upper left twice to return to the video recorder.
  5. The controls on the right will start on event 1, heat 1, all lanes. If swimmers are assigned to this event, you will see their names at the top.
  6. The following controls are available.
