To advance the sport of swimming by defining, improving and refining racing-start techniques for competitive swimmers of all ages and all levels of competition. To provide state-of-the-art resources, tools, and training for swimmers and coaches. And to become the standard start-dive technique and training system for the elite swim teams of the world.
PowerStarts® was established in 2001.
We began with the PowerStarts Technique™ for racing start dives. The Technique takes maximum advantage of physics, biomechanics, kinesiology, ballistics, and hydrodynamics to make almost any swimmer faster.
To train the Technique in a fun and simple manner, such that the swimmer need not understand any of the "-ics" and "-ologies," we developed the PowerStarts Training System™. The Training System mounts on the deck and extends out over the water to define and control the Start Technique. Every pool and block system is different, so we required a mounting method independent of the blocks at the pool: The PowerStarts Portable Starting BlockT™.
Now the Portable Starting Block is used by individuals, clubs, schools, and teams all around the world.
