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 book 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.
