There truly are a thousand paths to success, this is evident through the variety of training and development programs breeding "fast" swimmers. There are some common "Do's and Don'ts," though, that you'll need to know to increase the chances for higher level success in the sport of swimming.
The critical component in the success of the athlete is almost always dependent on the strength of the relationship between athletes, parents and coaches. What steps are you taking to strengthen these relationships?
Chuck coached our daughter as a young age group swimmer where, under his program and coaching, she developed a long term love of the sport. Chuck's brought a combination of enthusiasm, interpersonal skills, and technical knowledge that enabled his team members to learn & develop, achieve results, and enjoy the experience.
Chuck is a great coach. He was fun to work with, made swimming interesting, and produced great results. He also understood that, although he was hired as a swimming coach, he could teach us other things. This included, but was not limited to, the value of hard work and discipline, integrity, intensity, and sportsmanship. I will always remember one practice where he devoted the entire time to practice tight and effective turns, and the one summer where he thought to captivate his swimmers' attentions (all relatively young) by displaying goals in a game - like manner, and including rewards. He went above and beyond, was creative, and didn't think of coaching as just a job with a payroll.
