The Regional Coaching Clinic program brings affordable clinics directly to teams in their own LSCs. These clinics are designed for the entire coaching staff from the novice coach to the senior level coach.

The clinic cost is $75 per coach or $200 for a coaching staff of 3 or more. Our clinics are priced to encourage participation by the entire coaching staff.

Coaches Registration Information


I am going to begin to post random articles about coaching and training and parents. If you have a subject you would like me to find info on please contact me at and I will see what I can do.

Also, if you are not members of the American Swimming Coaches Association, you are missing out on a lot of great  info and educational opportunities. Go to for info.

One source of reporting and opinion that has been top notch for a long time is Cap And Goggles by Casey Barrett. He has sources and access to info that we should all know so we can keep our Administrators, NCAA, HS, USA Swimming on the up and up.

A great source of information about coaching, not specific to swimming, but to the art and business of coaching is the "Winning Ways Blog" and its "Championship Performance" newsletter. I have made a couple of links to some of them below.

Swimswam is also a useful source of information, although they have had some issues in the past with not sourcing their stories very carefully.
