Invitation from the presenter, Guy Edson:
“I enjoy teaching this course more than any other course we offer. I like it because it offers immediately usable information on the most fundamental aspects of what we do – we teach correct stroke mechanics. I also like it because it is fun to teach. I use lots of great video clips and real life stories of teaching and learning. There is more going on than just stroke technique in this class – there is a lot to do with running a practice session and positive coaching.
I gave up coaching senior swimmers when joining the ASCA staff in 1988 and I have been focusing on coaching age group and developmental swimmers for the last 31 years. I love going to practice every day and I am continually learning new teaching techniques which I enjoy bringing to you. I try to make all the explanations and all the details easy to understand.
If you are thinking you are too advanced for what we are offering, consider this: everything I show you, you can use to improve your younger staff members. Better yet, send your younger staff members! I promise, they will get a lot out of this course.
And for those of you who are coaches of developmental swimmers, this course is made for you!
I have tons of video clips. I will show you what the Olympians are doing and we will talk about current trends in stroke technique. However, the emphasis is on teaching. I have many more videos of swimmers aged 8 to 12 (just like your swimmers) attempting various drills and stroke progressions.
We will cover basic biomechanical principles, principles of teaching, starts, turns, free, back, breast, fly, and finishes.
It is a really good course and I hope you can come. Remember, there are no pre-requisites and you do not need to be an ASCA member.
The cost is $69 and includes the ASCA Level 2 manual.
I hope to see you there!
