ASCA World Clinic 2016: Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Sept 6th – 11th

About the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) World Clinic

The ASCA World Clinic is in its 48th year in 2016. It is a World Clinic in terms of attendees (over 30 nations are represented) and scope, with educational programs ranging from Learn-to-Swim, to age group swimming, to training Olympians and Masters Swimmers.

Seminars on athlete training, research, program administration and operation, bio-mechanics and coaching philosophy are all a part of this remarkable annual event. Attendees can choose among lectures, workshops, classes, and poster presentations. There are over 300 hours of educational content to choose from.

The coaches who attend the World Clinic are the thought leaders in our profession. Up to 20% are international, more than 50% are Head Coaches, and the leading high school coaches and Division I NCAA coaches attend, as well as USA Swimming club coaches. Increased college presence will be felt, as the College Swimming Coaches Association of America greatly expands its programming and expected attendance. In total, between 1500 and 2000 coaches have attended each year during the past decade.

It’s a large, diverse crowd with one thing in common: they are either the leaders in our sport, or they aspire to be in the future. They make a substantial commitment to their professional development by attending the ASCA World Clinic.
