The theory behind this concept is to increase the resources available to Gold Coast coaches, in a local environment to gain additional experience, information, contacts and personal development requirements for ASCTA reaccreditation.
The topics that will be put forward will largely be dependent on feedback from you, the coaches, as these are for you to get the latest information and knowledge that best serves your purpose in becoming the best coach you can be and guiding your swimmers towards obtaining their goals.
There is an enormous amount of information that swimmers and their parents expect coaches to know in the world of “elite junior swimming”, however, there is no way possible for anyone to know everything. The aim of these events is to provide ALL coaches on the Gold Coast with the general understanding of the multifaceted components of sport coaching and athlete management such as nutrition, sports psychology, strength & conditioning, recovery, breathing, mental wellbeing etc.
It is also to provide you with a contact list of subject matter experts that are local here to the Gold Coast that you can work with in conjunction with any swimmer that you feel comfortable referring, where required.
