2014 Coaches Swiminar


This one-of-a-kind clinic is Saturday, November 8 and Sunday, November 9, and held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting at St. Mary's College. 

Top coaches and speakers from around the region will present contemporary topics on:
  • Teaching progressions with mirrors, tools and toys
  • Ultra-Short Race Pace Training
  • Backstroke and Butterfly Technique 
  • Writing workouts 
  • Dryland for Masters swimmers
  • Internet technology and phone apps for the modern coach
  • Business opportunities available to Masters coaches.

Regardless of your experience level, this clinic offers an opportunity for novice and veteran coaches to learn new information and share past experiences. All sessions are built with the goal of getting coaches to go beyond their current levels and advance their knowledge and skills. No matter what your experience level, you have much to gain by attending this clinic.


The clinic begins Sat. morning at the Lafayette Library with six presentations then moves up the hill to Moraga for clinic drills in two strokes and is followed by a full-group round table discussion. Coaches interested in learning the drills themselves are encouraged to bring their suits and goggles for in-water sessions. The clinic concludes Sun. morning at St. Mary's College with two more speakers leading right into the Pacific Masters Swimming Annual Meeting and luncheon.


The cost of the clinic is $25 for Pacific Masters coaches and $50 for those outside the LMSC. Space will be limited, so save the date and plan on attending this informational and educational seminar. [Information and Registration]
