The first day of the Clinic, August 24, 2021, includes presentations by Coaches and Sports Scientists.
The ISCA conference is calling for presentation proposals by coaches and scientists that explain the application of scientific concepts to swim training and performance. The most important criterion for acceptance is that the presentation includes science-based information that a coach can immediately apply to his or her swimmers to improve performance.
Presentation options include:
- Discussion of the application of a scientific concept during training with performance outcomes.
- Summary of research findings with strategies to implement during training.
While coaches and scientists are welcome to submit either option, it is expected that coaches are most likely to submit Option 1 and scientists are most likely to submit Option 2.
Sample topics for either format may be:
- Training Intensity vs. Training Distance
- Deliberate Practice Strategies, and
- Index of Coordination
