  • Written by Swim Smart founders Karl and Mike
  • Perfect for new coaches looking to make coaching their career
  • A resource for head coaches wanting to help improve their assistants
  • Directly applicable guidelines, tips and instruction

This book is for new coaches looking to make a career in swimming and for head coaches looking for a resource to help bring up their assistants in a guided way.

There is a big (and often unseen) gap between being a swimmer/swammer and a swim coach. This book aims to close the gap. 

Between college, medical school, starting new clubs, inventing multiple products, starting multiple businesses, raising families… our experiences and mistakes come together to help you build your swim team.
