It is important for us to recognize the key ingredient to our success in this endeavor… the student-athlete.
The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) takes great pleasure in announcing the 2016 recipients of six annual major awards. The awards will be presented at the CSCAA Annual Banquet on Thursday, May 5, 2016 held in conjunction with the CSCAA Convention at the Hilton Doubletree Washington DC-Crystal City
As the summer of 2016 approaches, two things are on my mind: the Olympic Games and how darn hot it’s going to be in Florida in just a few weeks. At the warmest part of the afternoon, our young club swimmers who are running as part of a conditioning and athletic readiness program join me on the trails that surround the National Training Center.
One of the things that strikes me as I watch (too much) basketball is listening to commentators refer to a coach who is talking to a player, usually one who has just come out of the game, as someone who is “always teaching.” Of course the coach is “always teaching.” That is what coaching is. Coaching is Teaching.
In addition to multiple sessions for coaches of both swimming and diving, for the second year we have sessions geared specifically for diving coaches.
The CSCAA Coach Academy May 3-4, 2016
The Coach Academy was the compass I needed to develop a total team philosophy unique to our swimmers. It is a valuable resource that inspires coaches and brings further purpose to a program.
