Cool Tools

OnDeck offers a few goodies in > Cool Tools to make your coaching easier and more effective.

Stopwatch

With the ability to time up to five swimmers, this is great for motivation.

  1. Select the number of watches—one or two (phone) or up to 3 in portrait, 5 in landscape (tablet).
    Select number of watches
  2. Tap either Unified Start (everyone starts at once) or Staggered Start (each watch has its own Start button).
  3. Tap the green Start button(s).
    Stopwatch Staggered Start
  4. Tap Lap as each swimmer completes a lap, as many laps as you want.
  5. Each time you tap Lap in a lane, you will see the lap number, split time and total running time.
  6. Tap Undo Lap if you accidentally tap Lap.
  7. Tap Stop when each swimmer finishes.
  8. Tap to Reset an individual watch (Staggered Start only), or tap the green circular arrow in the upper right reset all to zero (visible only with Unified Start).

Time Converter

Use this to convert times for a distance and stroke from one course to another, such as SCY to LCM.

Time Converter

  1. Tap the time to convert from at the top and enter each time portion, from hours, minutes, seconds, and tenths/hundredths, tapping Next after each one (only if you enter a single digit; it will advance automatically when you enter two digits) and Done at the end.
  2. Tap DISTANCE / STROKE, select those, Select.
  3. Tap the course you are converting from on the left, and to on the right. You may only select the options in blue.
  4. The converted time shows on the bottom.
  5. The circular arrow in the upper right resets everything.

Pace Calculator

Use this to help your swimmers know what average lap times they need to hit a certain timing target.

Tap distance first

  1. Tap the final distance, such as 200. Note the color coding that represents valid distances for each course.
  2. Tap the target time at the top and enter each time portion, from hours, minutes, seconds, and tenths/hundredths, tapping Next after each one and Done at the end.
  3. Below you will see the average times needed to hit that target.
  4. You may tap other distances (#2) and it will calculate the target (#1) and lap times (#3) based on your original entry.
  5. The circular arrow in the upper right resets everything.
