The .first is the description of a theoretical framework to organize and clarify the various stages, methods and technical contents applied in the field of competition swimming. The second part of the paper is devoted to the study of technical errors, analyzing their possible causes and their importance in respect to their repercussions for the impetus of the technical model. A methodological proposal for correcting the errors is also presented.
