Level 4: Leadership School – Guy Edson
The Leadership School is the fourth of ASCA’s five certification courses. One can argue that effective coaching is all about effective leadership, and, therefore, Level 4 is a course to take early in your coaching career. Leaders are not born, they are made. This course can help make them. Developed from our highly successful clinic course, the Leadership School manual teaches specific skills and steps that you need to master to lead children, or other adults, effectively.

How to Write Workouts for Age Group – Coach Guy Edson
Age group swim teams should get better by plan – not by accident (or new people moving into town or simply growing 2 inches over the weekend.) This popular course presents a practical process for creating a season training plan based on goals. The overall emphasis is that age group workouts should be written according to objectives, rather than yardage – although, yardage is important to record and evaluate. Age Group swimmers are not just little seniors and should have workouts written to their needs. Writing workouts requires a different approach and some different ideas that may upset your current mode of thinking. (That’s a good thing!)
