Since 2001, GoSwim.tv has produced over 3,000 videos on swimming technique. We have worked with more than 60 Olympic athletes as well as beginning-level swimmers and all levels in-between. In that time, GoSwim was honored with the Paragon Award from the International Swimming Hall of Fame and became the Official Technique Video App for United States Swimming.

Learning the details of swimming is a search, a process with a path toward general improvement, and the need for the individual to follow specific steps suited only to them. GoSwim has produced content that not only follows progressions, patterns, and more general paths, but we’ve also produced content that serves the content that can help the individual learn their specific needs.

Because of the vast content library, created over the past 20 years, USA Swimming uses GoSwim videos in its Athlete Development Module for online education. No platform has created as many teaching options for customized learning as GoSwim.

Simply put, we’re real education. Education is now combined with your performance data to recommend the most appropriate videos based on your data. Get the videos you need when you need them the most. Our goal is to help you become the best swimmer you can be. This means a staged approach to learning the fundamentals of swimming. There are things you MUST do to have the CHANCE to reach your potential in swimming. We’ll be honest about how the process takes time,and about how spending more time learning the fundamentals will help you create a better experience long term.

There are no shortcuts, just as there are no shortcuts in learning how to play an instrument or learning martial arts. You must mast a step before moving to the next,or the next step won’t be as effective. In other words, we’re honest about the process.

We’ve lived the process as athletes, coaches, and educators. Co-Founders Glenn Mills and Barbara Hummel had extensive competitive careers. Glenn won the US Olympic Trials, Finaled at World Championships, won the Division 1 NCAA Championships, and has set Masters Swimming World Records. Barbara swam in 2-Olympic Trials, has set Masters World Records, and has been coaching for the past 25 years.

Taking a very logical approach to swim, both Glenn and Barbara take an honest approach to teaching, workout creation, and swimmer evaluation.

Glenn spent more than 16 months in an RV, traveling the United States. Visiting more than 80 teams and filming more than 10,000 lengths of swimming, he learned the typical problems swimmers have, but more importantly, how to fix them.

First, knowledge acquisition,or learning a new skill, does take time. Swimming is a complex series of movements that must be coordinated with a balanced body and an understanding of the sequenced timing of each stroke. By creating courses that walk you through the step-by-step building blocks of each stroke, you can take each skill and learn it independently of all the others and master it more completely.

Rushing through the process can leave you frustrated with the final result, so we encourage you to take small steps and focus on one skill at a time. While we won’t restrict you from jumping around in the app, most content will follow a learning progression. This means we want you to watch and practice a skill more than just a few times before clicking the “I own it. Ready to move on.” button. You’ll notice you’ll get credit for completing a lesson,and we hope that by the time you finish 100% of the lessons in a course,you’re a better and more knowledgeable swimmer

Thomas Meek ,

Great for extending your teaching off deck!

I’m a Master coach with many swimmers ages 40+, most of which did not grow up swimming and are still learning many fundamental concepts. I show them competitive swimmers technique so they could understand why we work on what we do. GoSwim has helped streamline the process of teaching because not only does it also offer professional-level swimmers executing racing strategy, it also focuses on teaching beginner and fundamental concepts in a very engaging and approachable manner. This tool has made teaching our masters swimmers much easier, as I can recommend to them the videos of the week and specific workouts in the app. Our team really appreciates the effort that has gone into this app and the entire GoSwim suite :)

Thank you!!!

Love it

I love GoSwim. I wait for the email on daily basis. It keeps me up to date especially since I’m out of the pool because of the numerous lockdowns in my country. But I can’t wait to get back in the pool both as a swimmer and as a coach and finally use the app not just read and watch! Meanwhile I’m learning how to use it outside of the water! Thank you Glenn Mills for everything you do to Swimming. Wish we had people like you where I come from!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind words. We can't wait for you to get back in the pool as well. :)

Utterly flabbergasted ,



I signed up for emails (without having to create an account) when this was a free service. I don’t blame them for switching to a paid service. The problem is, I’m still getting emails from them daily. And all the emails do (now) is provide a link to content I can no longer access. In order to change my email preferences I need to “sign in”, which I can’t do because I don’t have an account. To get an account I need to sign up for one of their paid services. So the only way they’ll let me stop getting emails is if I pay for their service. Ridiculous, and if it’s not fixed soon I’ll be reporting them and seeking damages.

Developer Response ,

Sorry for the trouble. First, all account, even free one had to create an account to see the free daily video. The new site maintains the free daily video for existing users, and we can be reached without logging in through the chat on the website. We apologize for any trouble not being able to unsubscribe and our devs are working on a better solution, but members who belong to groups may have multiple groups so the simple unsubscribe is more difficult that unsubscribing from the regular weekly newsletter.

Visit the site, www.goswim.tv, let us know the email you wish removed from the system, and we'll delete all data and email from our site. No problem and no questions.

Hope that helps.
