Addressing the Challenging Situations in Age Group Coaching and in Being the Parent of an Age Group Swimmer.
This exciting new book by Age Group Coach and ASCA Executive Director John Leonard comes from 30 years of advice provided to coaches across the world. It addresses the “real world questions” that age group coaching have to deal with daily.
Written as a collection of essay-length responses to major issues, Common Issues and Solutions in Age Group Swimming Coaches & Parents provides educational material to age group parents, and the articles for coaches provide great starting points for staff discussions on handling these issues within your own team.
The parent section provides answers from someone outside your staff that will convey age group wisdom of the ages (likely the exact same thing you would say, but with a different voice providing the input, it’s sometimes “heard better.”)
Getting age group coaches off to a great start on their careers is one of the cornerstones of the American Swimming Coaches Association and this publication contributes to that goal.
