CSCAA Coach Academy - May 6-7, 2017

The CSCAA Coach Academy is unlike any coaching clinic you've ever attended.  The role of coach on a college campus has changed, requiring a greater skill set for success than ever before.  The CSCAA Coach Academy is a unique opportunity for coaches to develop the off-deck skills necessary to succeed at the collegiate level.

Limited in size, the Coach Academy allows participants to work directly with instructors.  Coaches will:

  • Strengthen their CEO Skills,
  • Improve the alignment of their programs with their institution;
  • Learn strategies to maximize your recruiting;
  • Gain skills to grow your alumni network and financial support; and
  • Expand your own personal network.

The CSCAA Coach Academy takes place immediately before the 2017 Convention and the first 50 teams registering for convention can receive a $100 credit towards the Coach Academy.  Space is limited so register today!

Here's what they say...





Eric DeLuccaI took so much away from the Coach Academy.  (I have about 30 pages of notes) The opportunity to meet and network with so many coaches from all over the country is extremely valuable. The talks from the higher level coaches were great. Eric DeLucca, Binghamton My most eye opening experiences were about recruiting and dealing with parents. I changed my entire recruiting strategy based on what we talked about. We have had a lot of success with it so far. - Sarah Woodbury, Tulane
Dani KormanThe relationships you foster with your athletes is the true key to success and the skills covered during the academy allowed me to grow. More importantly, I was honing these skills alongside my peers who have become a tremendous support system for me. -Dani Korman
SchranckI feel like the Coach Academy is more interactive. It forces you to get involved and think about the things you are doing and how you could do certain things better or differently. -Doug Schranck, Drury
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. - Christine Mabile, Missouri Adrien
DowneyIt is somehow more dramatic, in-your-face, and memorable than other presentations, and so has a chance to really impact one’s coaching style in a more lasting way.  The horizontal networking opportunities were immensely easier and less intimidating. Adrien Downey, Buffalo State
