ASCA Level 1: The Foundations of Coaching
The Foundations of Coaching course covers the fundamental principles of swimming and swim coaching. The course is designed to introduce coaches to the philosophy of our sport, and empower coaches on the pool deck. Topics covered include swim management, coaching communication, teaching methods, and guidance on developing young athletes
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. Topics covered include:
• Biomechanics and Scientific Principles for the Understanding the Swimming Strokes
• Teaching Progressions for Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle
• Effective Starts and Turns
• Skills and Methods for Better Coaching
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!
ASCA LEVEL 4 - The Leadership School
is the fourth of ASCA’s five certification courses. One can argue that effective coaching is all about effective leadership, and, therefore, Level 4 is a course to take early in your coaching career. Leaders are not born, they are made. This course can help make them.
Developed from our highly successful clinic course, the Leadership teaches specific skills and steps that you need to master to lead children, or other adults, effectively.
