Reply To: Question about collecting data
My suggestion is “keep it all!” Especially race splits you can use them to evaluate training pace to race performance after the meet.
Another one of your key indictors in the evaluation process will be percent of number made from number offered. I’ll use our “25s freestyle set” to date they have had 270 offered; swimmer A made 169 a 62.59% made, B is 116 a 42.96% made and C is 83 a 30.74% made, Which one has the better attendance? It’s B. Not that attendance is not important there are times it does state the obvious and there are times it is very misleading.
That’s why for now I say “keep it all” easier to have and not need, then need and not have.
