ASCA Level 2 – The Stroke School This course builds off of the material in the Level 1 School and is designed to educate coaches on constructing the best strokes for their swimmers during practice. The primary reason parents bring their children to practice is to learn how to swim better—This is where it starts.

ASCA Level 3 – The Physiology School The Physiology School reviews how swimmers’ bodies react and adapt to training, while also helping coaches develop a long-term training plan. Topics covered include core swimming physiology (and the interaction of the various physical and mental systems), as well as training progressions from novice to Senior. A great resource for coaches working with swimmers of all ages!
