The Swimmingly app is an easy-to-use app that runs your entire swim meet. The Swimmingly Clubhouse is an easy-to-use website that runs your entire summer season (before and after each meet).
Swimmingly shortens each of your swim meets by 30-90 minutes and reduces volunteers needed to run each meet. Swimmingly handles the actual operations of the swim meet–on the pool deck (timing system, DQ process, scoring, ribbon label printing).
Here are the headaches the Swimmingly app eliminates:
Traditionally, timers have to handle a manual stopwatch, clipboard, wet time cards, and a pencil to hand write results after each heat; scribbling results down fast enough to reset their watch for the next race. Swimmingly eliminates this pressure altogether. Timers tell us that they actually enjoy timing with Swimmingly.
You don’t need any other software or hardware. Swimmingly can run your whole summer season. All you need is:
(1) Your Swimmingly Starter Kit we ship you.
(2) the Swimmingly app (free to download).
(3) the iOS/Android device that is already in your pocket!
*For teams that like to keep a database of results, we ARE COMPATIBLE with other systems : )
We believe the swimmers should have the satisfaction of their ribbons in-hand as they leave the swim meet.
At the discretion of the Scorekeeper, ribbon labels can be printed at the conclusion of each event, as the swim meet progresses.
Swimmingly ribbon labels print to any AirPrint compatible printer; see a list of AirPrint printers here.
Swimmingly completely eliminates “dead time” between heats — the starter is always free to start the next heat as soon as the current race is over.
150 heats x 20 seconds “dead time” = …think about it
You can always save more time by combining heats or combining events.
The Timers will always know who is touching the wall at the finish of the race! You don’t HAVE to abide by the heat sheet at all times : )
We will ship you a Starter Kit that includes an outdoor WiFi router. This connects all your devices together on the pool deck and using the app to run your meet does not require any internet connection. Simply plug-in the router and you are ready to go.
Learning how to use Swimmingly is easy!
Once your swim club signs up for Swimmingly, your club has access to training in several different ways.
We ship (12) waterproof/universal lanyards with each Starter Kit. The pouch keeps your device sealed and protected from any splashing. The lanyard keeps your device securely around your neck similar to a stopwatch. Your device is fully functional within the pouch.
No! If your team is looking for better, easier ways to run your meets, nothing is stopping you. Be the hero for your league. Most of our leagues have begun with single teams/divisions that quickly end up in entire league adoption!
Any club can come to your meet and enjoy the benefits of Swimmingly free of charge. There is no additional work required for you as the meet host.
The host club can use Swimmingly even if they’re not a customer! There’s no additional cost or work required.
Because we truly believe in the Swimmingly experience, we will always help get the other teams set up if they want to test the waters : )
Just use the device already in your pocket and download the app for free. Volunteers then use your club’s credentials to log in.
Here is a best practice that many of our teams do prior to the start of each season:
You can fill in lanes during the swim meet and make any changes you want to save time. Swimmingly let’s you make any changes during the meet without any additional work.
It is not uncommon for a heat to have only one swimmer. With the Dolphin system, there’s nothing you can do and the athlete has to swim alone. With Swimmingly, you can easily move swimmers and change heat/lanes to compete next to this swimmer–no additional work required.
Also, we’re an app! Using Swimmingly is as familiar as using your own device. This means purchasing obsolete hardware is a thing of the past.
