Another year has been and gone, and we’d like to toast to your wins in 2019, whether they were great or small. To close out 2019, let’s take a glance back at the numbers for the ProSwimWorkouts platform.
Google Analytics tell us that we had about 150k pageviews over the span of the year, 146’415 to be exactly – a “significant” decrease of 30% from last year. We publish an update nearly every day from a variety of coaches with the hope that it’s interesting and exposes us all to new ideas. Throughout 2019, we posted 304 workouts (more than in 2018) and only 5 Podcast episodes.
2019 was an exciting year for swimming with the start of the International Swim League (ISL). This new “meet format” is an attempt to give athletes an opportunity to make a living and compete in a professional circuit in a similar fashion as we know this from sports like American Football or Basketball. Of course, other meets have done a good job in the past providing athletes with cash prices and we are very proud to be a small part of that mouvement by supporting the Lausanne Swim Cup for four straight years.
The goal of our platform is to share information, resources, and help advance the swim coaching profession. In short through serving coaches, we aim to become a trusted source for swim coaching professionals. One way we have been providing opportunities for coaches is through our partnership with the International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA) and the scholarship for their yearly Summit.
We are working on adding other opportunities and more value for visitors and members of our platform in the future. Things are moving slow at times and they are small steps. Nonetheless, we know that every little bit helps and we will keep providing all the details on how we make a difference.
Our biggest joy in this time of the year is the opportunity to say “THANK YOU“. We’re continually humbled by the positive feedback and are grateful that so many of you feel our platform is having an impact in your daily coaching. Thank you for inspiring us – we’re excited for the coming year!
From our family to yours, we wish you a happy and successful 2020. It’s gonna be fun!
