Three Specific Questions for Three Good Coaches, Listen Here.




At the ASCA we are always looking to learn from others. This week, John Leonard had the pleasure of talking with three legendary coaches, Megan Oesting, Chad Onken, and Ira Klein. Coach Leonard asked just one question to each of the three coaches.

  • “Megan, you’re about to have an age group athlete swim the 200 IM. What are your key instructional points for the athlete? ”
  • “Chad, give us what you consider the three keys to executing a successful training session”
  • “Ira, when you are thinking of psychological traits of an athlete you want to coach, what would the top 3 be?”
