How can we improve swimming through Augmented Reality?

SwiMMinD believes that swimming can be improved by Augmented Reality (AR) as:

  • Visualization

Michael Phelps is the greatest swimmer. One of the secrets of his success was that he was able to visualize his swimming and thus improve his technique.

AR could help swimmers and coaches visualize 3-D models in the real world, in real time. Thus, swimmers would have an advantage and could potentially become much faster than Michael Phelps.

Virtual memory makes us memorize faster and by utilizing AR, we can increase swimmer’s interaction by aiding their visual memory.

Generally, swim sessions stimulate learning though practical implementation. That is why for some children it could be very hard to understand what is being taught by their coach unless she enters the pool. Beginner swimmers need to picture the relevant swim skill in their mind and if they do not see an example the improvements could be very limited.  

AR does not impede the learning but accelerates it. Children now do not need to picture in their heads what things in real life might be like but can actually see and feel them.

This takes imagination and creativity to a whole new level as now AR is the base on which they will build their imaginative worlds.

  • Increased sensory and mental development

With AR it is possible to improve people’s physical and mental abilities. In general, swimming is a practical activity which requires more mental involvement if you need faster improvements. That is why, besides swimming, students would need to gain more knowledge by seeing and observing through stimulating videos, images, cartoon characters, three-dimensional charts, graphs, etc. Such kind of learning aids have a better impact on beginner swimmers.

  • Interactive learning

Persistence is key in succeeding in anything, but you cannot have persistence without fun. AR makes swimming fun and effortless. Basically, AR would lead to deeper engagement in swimming sessions. Swimmers’ mind will be excited and their body active.

It is not just swimming. AR increases the thinking process and thus swimmers will improve their swimming technique and they will progress much faster.

  • Less injuries

With AR swimmers would understand things easily and grasp essential and complex skills much faster. This is important because not all coaches could give full attention to their swimmers and bad habits could lead to injuries.

  • More knowledge

Have you seen swimmers buying textbook or any other materials for learning purposes? Swimmers rely entirely on the knowledge of their coach and they never question her methods. They can just hope that their coach has all the appropriate tools to teach them. Unfortunately, not all coaches are trained (certificates/diploma) or even if they are trained, they do not always follow the standards for each of their students.

Can you imagine if you go to school and the textbooks for all subjects your child reads are written by his only one teacher? That will never be accepted in any educational system. This is the problem that SwiMMinD AR focuses on. With AR swimmers will be able to listen to their coach and interactively gain more knowledge about swimming and see whether they are following well established learn to swim programs or are just being bathed.

Dependability of swimmers on their coach could be reduced greatly by introducing AR, especially in adults swimming where students are driven to learn on their own. This would only lead to further progress in the swimming sector because with the support of AR coaches could give more individual attention to all of their swimmers, instead of having few favorite students.

  • Encourage parent involvement

AR could greatly increase the parent involvement in their children’s swimming skills development, especially if children use the AR at private pools.  

  • Teach that anything is possible

AR can bring objects, fairy and scary creatures in the swimming pools which are impossible to be present in current swimming sessions. Thus, in a Pokémon Go style SwiMMinD releases sharks, dolphins, whales, seahorses, sirens mermaids and more at local swimming pools across the globe!

2019 Remote SwiMMinD Games: How to participate, watch and stream, events, swimmers, dates, times.

Everything you need to know to tune into the Remote SwiMMinD Games

The race to determine “the fastest swimmers on the universe” has just began. The 2019 Remote SwiMMinD Games kicked off on Monday 1 October 2018 with its first stage, “the Nationals.” This stage is open to anyone, anywhere in the universe. Thousands, millions of swimmers are welcomed to upload their video races and challenge themselves to race against other swimmers without leaving their local pools.

We are starting earlier, in October 2018, not in January 2019 because it is the first ever video race for “the fastest swimmers on the universe”.

Here’s everything you need to know about the SwiMMinD Games or how to become the fastest swimmer in the universe.

I. What are the SwiMMinD Games?

It is great if you are one of the first to learn about this exclusive and exciting opportunity. SwiMMinD Games qualify, and award swimmers interested to compete globally without leaving their local pools, remotely.

Stage 1 – Nationals

Each country represents a virtual, remote racing arena. The Nationals Stage has the biggest duration because we want to give many opportunities to any level

swimmers. Thus, a swimmer from developing countries will have a great motivation to be one of the best in its own country.

At the end of the Nationals period, 30 June 2019, the best 100 swimmers per event shall advance to the next stage of competition, the Regionals. For instance, on 50 m. Freestyle, the first 100 people will qualify for the Regionals.

Men and Women will be placed separately.

Stage 2 – Regionals 

The Race continues but this time on the Regional level. The Competing regions are as follows:

  •  United States of America and Canada.
  • Europe and Australia.
  • Latin America, Asia and Africa.

National identity stays throughout the competition. Hence, if during the Nationals a German wins the 50 m. Freestyle, during the Regionals (combining Europe and Australia) he will still compete as German.

At the end of the Regionals period, 30 November 2019, the best 10 swimmers per event shall advance to the next stage of competition, the Global Race. For instance, on 50 m. Freestyle, the first 10 people will qualify for the Global Race.

Stage 3 – Global Race

It takes one month. There will be various Awards for the global winners. During the first two stages there will be also Awards. Our plan is to have a three-day live competition in this stage, but this depends on the popularity of the Games. Therefore, let’s make this event truly a race of the universe by entering into the race NOW and we will have a live competition in the first year.

II. Who makes it to the SwiMMinD Games?

For the last stage only the best 10 swimmers (male and female) per event qualify.  Once again, this stage could be a live event but all that depends on the popularity.

Remote Racing Games

The “Remote Racing Games” Module at SwiMMinD qualifies and awards swimmers interested to compete globally without leaving their local pools.

Basically, anyone could compete, no matter the age, gender or nationality. The guiding registration principle is based on nationality, not on location. Basically, each country shall have a bespoke division which becomes the norm. Hence, if a user is a permanent resident of York, United Kingdom he could still make a video race while visiting friends or relatives in Bloomington, Indiana, US.

Every year, hundreds of thousands, even millions of swimmers could come together to compete in the worldwide, global online/remote competition, the SwiMMinD Remote Racing Games.

Users must pick their best event, upload a video of their swim at SwiMMinD and wait to see whether they qualify or have the best time in the world at their age group.

There are four stages at the “Remote Racing Games” : The Locals, The Regionals, The Nationals and the Global Race.

STAGE 1 – The Locals – 6 months
Each country in the world shall be divided on 4 different local sections: North East, South East, Central North, Central South, North West and North South. If the Country is too small such as Malta the division shall be based on cities. If the country is too narrow, such as Japan, the division shall be North, Central North, Central South and South.

Big countries shall have more local sections. For instance, America shall be divided as follows: North East, Mid Atlantic, South East, Central East, North Central, South West, South Central, North California, South California North west.

The Locals Stage has the biggest duration because we want to give many opportunities to beginner swimmers. Moreover, we have the Locals because not all areas are developed equally. Thus, we want to give a chance to the underdeveloped areas where there could be a beginner swimmer who could get such a motivation from his initial win which could motivate him to become the best in the world.

At the end of the six months period, the best 30 swimmers per age group per each event shall advance to the next stage of competition, the Nationals. In other words, top 30 per event, gender and age shall qualify for nationals. For instance, on 50 m. Freestyle, the first 30 boys for the age group 7&U qualify for the Nationals.

STAGE 2- The Nationals – 3 months
The Race continues but this time on the National level.

Top 30 per event, gender and age will advance from regions in the U.S. and Canada.

Top 30 per event, gender and age will advance from Europe and Australia.

Top 30 per event, gender and age from Latin America, Asia and Africa.

National identity stays throughout the competition. Hence, if during the Nationals a German wins the 50 m. Freestyle, during the Regionals (combining Europe and Australia) he will still compete as German.

STAGE 3 – The Regionals – 2 months
Top 30 per event, gender and age shall advance for the Global Race

STAGE 4 – The Global Race – 1 month
It takes one month. There will be various Awards for the global winners.
