ASCA and FINIS Philippines are working together in offering Swim Coaching Certification for Level 1&2 as well as a Certification Course for Finis Technical Gear.
Level 1 – Foundations of Coaching
In this introductory course, participants learn the fundamentals required for coaching. It provides a dynamic curriculum that will challenge professionals to create their own coaching philosophies based on a strong foundation. Coaches learn the importance and benefits of productive relationships with parents, volunteers, athletes and their community. A strong emphasis is placed on honing communication skills, safety, and providing pathways for long-term athlete progression and success.
Once ASCA members have passed this course, they will be ASCA Level 1 Certified.
ASCA Level 2 – The Stroke School
The ASCA Level 2 School is designed to help coaches achieve a professional knowledge base for teaching effective technique and proper mechanics, while simultaneously reinforcing healthy progressions at each developmental level in the sport. This course incorporates step-by-step examples of technique-based skills and progressions coupled with video demonstrations. Once ASCA members have passed Level 1 and Level 2 courses, and have coached for at least 6 months, they will become ASCA Level 2 Certified.
