Stroke Builder from is the definitive guide to swimming front crawl and correcting faults using swimming drills. The app features videos narrated by 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 first 4 videos. The rest of the content is offered as In-App Purchases. This content is split into 3 sections
- stroke builder, fault fixer and drills database, so you can choose the section that suits your current level of swimming or get all 3 to complete this comprehensive guide to front crawl.

Novice swimmers should start with the stroke builder section which will lead them step-by-step to developing an efficient front crawl.
