ASCA Schools

ASCA Level 2 Stroke School – $75.00

The ASCA Stroke School is about fundamentals. It is about constructing strokes and correcting strokes. When constructing a stroke which fundamentals do we teach first – what is the progression? What are the teaching techniques? When correcting strokes, how do we spot the difficulty and how do we approach it? We will view Olympians and look at the latest trends and techniques but we will spend the majority of the time talking about the young swimmers YOU coach. Tons of video clips… very energetic presentation… you’ll learn things you can put to use the next day. There are no pre-requisites and all coaches are welcome.
