Foundations of Coaching Online Courses
Foundations of Coaching Online Courses and Free Reference Library
USA Swimming is very pleased to announce that we have launched both Foundations of Coaching 101 and 201 online courses. A new coach member of USA Swimming is required to take Foundations 101 prior to becoming a first-year coach. Prior to registering for their 2nd year, coaches must complete the Foundations 201 course.
This new format is not just about taking a test, it is about coach education and is applicable and available to any coach seeking to update, review and add to his or her coaching education. 101-201 is an online textbook of information, resources, video and illustration. Any coach is welcome and encouraged to purchase the courses and take advantage of the information. For experienced coaches who have met the basic education requirement and are interested in reviewing the new online courses, is not necessary to take the courses in the 101-201 order or to take the tests at the conclusion of each course. The cost of Foundations 101 is $15, the cost of Foundations 201 is $25.
As a separate feature, there is a free Reference Library of documents and video available to all coaches without purchase of a course.
