Abstract: It was the purpose of this study to construct a set of film loops and audio cassette recordings that could be used as a teaching aid in a situation where the instructor has little or no knowledge of synchronized swimming skills. To determine the scope of this project, a questionnaire was sent to experts in the field of synchronized swimming. After evaluating the returned questionnaires, an outline of the contents was established and several filming sessions were held. A technique for synchronizing the visual film loops and the audio cassette tape recordings was then developed to meet the needs of this project. The final film loop series was evaluated by experts in the field of synchronized swimming, audiovisual instruction, and swimming instruction. The cassettes and film loops show and explain the basic skills performed correctly, the common faults, and ways to correct the common faults. The six film loops cover the basic body positions and skills using the body positions. The judges decided that the series was acceptable for instructional use but not for commercial use. A copy of the film and cassette series is on file at Jackson Library at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
