Words of Wisdom (Coach Don Swartz)

Words of Wisdom (Coach Don Swartz)

The American Swimming Coaches Association is the single best and greatest resource for the aspiring coach. If you haven’t joined you are missing out on a continual source of vital information. Just Google ASCA…https://swimmingcoach.org and go from there.
 
In the course of reorganizing the home office we saw in a 2013 Newsletter with an article by world renowned and respected Bill Sweetenham entitled “Uncomplicated Coaching”.
 
A couple of gems from that article:
 
“If you fly blind, disaster is assured, so knowledge is important; knowledge of the product…a guy getting out of bed and a sign that says – first your pants and then your shoes. The coach’s experience must always be in advance of the athlete’s talent.”
 
[Got a young phenom on your team?…better stay ahead of his/her talent…or he/she will move to another team]  
“Too many people believe; well, I can train this way but when it comes to competition I will rise above it. The exact reverse applies. You will never compete above that level”
 
“Squads should have athletes training and preparing at a level of effort and commitment higher than the most talented in the group.”
 
3 gems that can reshape your career – athlete or coach. Thanks Bill and we just got a good idea for this week’s training. Thanks ASCA for making the wisdom available!
