ASCA, NISCA and CSCCA have all used and are expanding their use of Swim Smart books, courses and knowledge to help their coaches take the next step in their self-development. Why? Because swimmers improve most when they believe in the workout and training they are doing.

Use your winter break wisely to help educate yourself, your swimmers, your staff and even your parents to build a team everyone wants to be on!

Swim Coach’s Starter Guide

Building a Team Everyone wants to be on

“Karl combines creative ideas with well-structured plans to provide an enjoyable to read and easy to understand guide to coaching swimming for every (new and experienced) coach.

Coaches at swim clinics often comment that they learn the most in the conversations after the clinic talks. “Swim Coaches Starter Guide” is like the very best of those discussions. I also highly recommend Biology of Swimming to everyone (coaches, swimmers and parents) looking for important and easy to understand information about almost all the science behind swim training and performance.

Read both books now, then thank Karl and Mike later! Thanks Karl & Mike.” – Coach Monty Hopkins
