About the ASCA World Clinic

The ASCA World Clinic is in its 48th year in 2016. It is a World Clinic in terms of attendees (over 30 nations are represented) and scope, with educational programs ranging from Learn-to-Swim, to age group swimming, to training Olympians and Masters Swimmers.

Seminars on athlete training, research, program administration and operation, bio-mechanics and coaching philosophy are all a part of this remarkable annual event. Attendees can choose among lectures, workshops, classes, and poster presentations. There are over 300 hours of educational content to choose from.

The coaches who attend the World Clinic are the thought leaders in our profession. Up to 20% are international, more than 50% are Head Coaches, and the leading high school coaches and Division I NCAA coaches attend, as well as USA Swimming club coaches. Increased college presence will be felt, as the College Swimming Coaches Association of America greatly expands its programming and expected attendance. In total, between 1500 and 2000 coaches have attended each year during the past decade.

It’s a large, diverse crowd with one thing in common: they are either the leaders in our sport, or they aspire to be in the future. They make a substantial commitment to their professional development by attending the ASCA World Clinic.

Attendee Testimonials

“Education is without a doubt the single most important element in having a successful career. Having attended clinics all over the country I can easily state that the most opportune environment to gain this needed education is at the ASCA World Clinic. If we do not learn new avenues to pursue our passion we will stagnate both our creativity and our results. Both learn and enjoy the ability to talk one on one with the very best coaches from around the world.”

– Coach Ira Klein

“The ASCA World Clinic is an opportunity – like no other – to not only learn from successful coaches who do formal presentations, but also to interact with coaches of all levels and share information. Learning from your peers is absolutely the best way to get practical information that allows you to become more professional and successful.”

– Coach Mick Nelson

“Hearing the invaluable latest and greatest coaching information and seeing the latest technological swim products on the market cannot be achieved any other way. More importantly, the motivation to excel gained by rubbing shoulders with elite coaches, and networking with coaches from around the world is priceless.”

– Coach Scott Colby

“The ASCA World Clinic is an outstanding resource for coaches of all levels. Critical panel discussions, successful techniques, and cutting-edge technologies are presented each year based on current trends in swimming. I have been attending since 2003 and it has not only helped me shape my own career path, but has also provided the unparalleled opportunity to learn from the sports’ top coaches, as well as a forum to connect with my peers from all over the world. The WC brings our swimming community together, and helps us grow.”

– Coach Kathleen Klein Prindle

“The ASCA Clinic has long been the world’s greatest think tank in the profession of coaching swimming at every level. From all over the world coaches come to confer with the brightest and most curious minds, to unlock the magic to their own unique coaching methodology, and I’m always excited to be one of them”

– Coach Chuck Warner

“In attending The ASCA from 1971 to 2015 as a coach and camp director, I never left without new ideas to educate swimmers or myself and challenge both to “be the best we could be,” as swimmers and people! Swimmers covered their faces on my return, because they knew there’d be revolutionary ideas to try and master, if we wanted to swim faster!”

– Coach Bob Steele

“For over 40 years, the ASCA convention has been not just a learning experience but an opportunity to revitalize old ideas and encourage and develop new ones.”

– Coach Gregg Troy

“All coaches, from first year coaches to experienced veterans, should take the time each year to invest in their professional development. Attending the ASCA World Clinic will give you the opportunity to learn up-to-date training methods, creative ideas on teaching stroke technique, and ways to effectively motivate your swimmers. I attend the ASCA World Clinic every year and I bring fresh ideas back to my club. Like a good comedian, all coaches need new material.”

– Coach Steve Haufler
