Level 2: Stroke School (Downloadable PDF)


As of July 1, the ASCA is eliminating the Manual option for purchase of the Level 2: Stroke School. (In the USA).
We believe the online version with its video-rich content is a far superior learning experience for our coaches.
The manual is still an option for our international members due to the inconsistencies in availability of online access internationally


Coaches in the UAE, KSA, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco please note: Professional Sports and Lifeguard (PS&L) of UAE is the exclusive provider of ASCA Certification Courses and Specialty Courses at on-site clinics and for online courses in the aforementioned countries/regions. For coaches in these regions: You will not receive the ASCA Gold Seal Certificate unless you take the course through PS&L. You must take the course through a Professional Sports & Lifeguard hosted clinic. For more information about clinics hosted by PS&L please contact either or

The Level 2: Stroke School is the most popular course in ASCA’s history. Over 18,000 coaches have taken the Level 2 Stroke School since 1986. The purpose of the Stroke School is to give the coach practical, useful tools to construct and to a lesser extent correct swimming strokes. This manual is a practical text for teaching. We do just enough science to give you the necessary foundation and then move on to the things that are helpful to you on deck every day.

This is the NEW 5th edition, designed by John Leonard to help coaches in the teaching and correction of swimming strokes. The 2013 revision is currently available in two forms:  home study course which can be completed “via Downloadable PDF and paper test” or the preferred method, the video-based online course.

* NOTE:  The Level 2 Stroke School does not satisfy the USA Swimming requirements of the Foundations of Coaching 201.
