But…the most exciting thing we want to announce, after having to cancel our 11th Annual ISCA Swim Coaches Summit along with our Hall of Fame Induction Dinner, we will be having our clinic leading into our ISCA International Senior Cup! The clinic will be held, starting late afternoon Saturday, March 26, 2022, and concluding Monday evening, March 28th, with our Hall of Fame Inductee Dinner. This year’s Inductees are as follows:
We Need Your Team & Coaches
11th Annual ISCA Coaches Summit: We are ecstatic to be honoring six great Hall of Fame Coaches! In addition, we will recognize and select the Club Coach of the Year. This is a brand new award, called the ISCA Mark Schubert Club Coach of the Year! In years to come, this will be one of the biggest honors bestowed to a Club Coach.
We hope you join us for this exciting event, honoring these magnificent Inductees! The best part, we are going to make this affordable. First, any coach who has a team entered in either the West Coast or East Coast Elite Showcase and the ISCA International Senior Cup can participate for $100, which will include the Hall of Fame Inductee Dinner. For any other coach or team that would like to come, it will be $150 for the first Coach (including the Hall of Fame Inductee Dinner). And, get this, bring your whole staff (up to 10) $400!
Science/Swim Training Concepts for Proposal
The first day of the Clinic, Saturday, March 26, 2022, 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
To make this event a success, and for you and your coaches to learn from some of the greatest names in swimming history, we need you to participate. We would like you to bring your coaches and staff. Please take this opportunity to make swimming better by bringing your coaches and learning from the best minds swimming has been able to produce.
Please join us for a few days of learning and an exciting celebration event!
