While USC Swimming & Diving has a powerhouse film school and entertainment alums with deep pockets helping them crankout slick, face-melting media like this video, see here, Notre Dame College offers you the softer, funnier, inside look at What Swim Coaches Do When Everyone Has Gone Home. Both are effective and great examples of how to introduce potential recruits to your program. At SwimSwam, we’re seeing more and more of these video, and we love them.
If you are a college swimming and diving program with a great promo or social media video, share with us!
