Coach Education

ASCA Videos
Pacific Swimming’s Club Development program is excited to extend the arrangement with the American Swimming Coaches Association to bring the best of coach education to our (ASCA) member coaches. This is an innovative and groundbreaking offer that brings the invaluable video library of the American Swimming Coaches Association to Pacific Swimming coaches at no cost. In the past, we have sent coaches to ASCA clinics and we have offered the purchase of books and DVD’s, but this is without question the most productive, efficient, and cost effective opportunity to help educate our coaches, and ultimately benefit our 17,000 athletes.
