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.
This course delivers a working, general knowledge of physiology as it applies to the sport of swimming. Participants learn to implement science into their training plan, including how to develop training cycles, seasonal planning, periodization, as well as the significance of rest, recovery, nutrition, and tapering. Throughout the course coaches are exposed to a variety of physiological models, including examples from Jon Urbanchek, Dave Salo, and Jan Prins.
Once ASCA members have passed Levels 1, 2 and 3 courses, and have coached for at least 12 months, they must submit proof of required accomplishments by an athlete to become ASCA Level 3 Performance Certified.

This course offers webinars on an array of topics led by proven and knowledgeable leaders in the sport of swimming. Because leadership development is vitally important to the success and advancement of the coaching profession, coaches learn both theory and practical application directly from colleagues who have become leaders in various aspects of the sport. Coaches learn about the structure of local, national and international governance organizations and how to get involved and make an impact. Coaches participate in virtual discussions and collaborate with their colleagues.
Once ASCA members have passed Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 courses, and have coached for at least 36 months, they must submit proof of required accomplishments by an athlete to become ASCA Level 4 Performance Certified.
