Guy Edson serves several roles at the American Swimming Coaches Association’s national office. His business card includes the titles of Technical Director, Job Service Coordinator, and Club Administration Advisor. Before joining ASCA Edson was a full time professional coach for 15 years coaching state champion age group teams in three states and placing over 40 swimmers on the national top 16 listing including one national record holder. He continues to coach part time with a local team where he delights in teaching a novice group of 20-30 swimmers. With Edson’s background it is no surprise that his expertise in his 2017 ASCA World Clinic talk, “Turns for Developing Swimmers” is something that coaches can view to advance their knowledge on teaching starts and turns with novices, from a coach who has extensive experience with the topic.
