Certification for Swim Coaches

All ISCA Coach Certification is now suspended and getting relocated to new web servers. As of August 2021, no enrollment in happening. We hope to get the ISCA Certification re-launched with the same, great content in the near future -- by as soon as October 1, 2021. 

ISCA aims to standardize and celebrate the achievements of modern swim coaches, rewarding them not only for their athletes’ performances, but for a demonstrated commitment to modern coaching education and their efforts to becoming, day-by-day, year-by-year, a better coach.

In order to receive certification, coaches must maintain their ISCA membership annually and agree to the ISCA Code of Practice.  Please note that only ISCA members can be certified coaches.  Member coaches can also apply for certification updates by filling out the appropriate online forms and submitting them to certification@swimisca.org.  Coaches will receive an ISCA e-certificate and updated e-membership card with successful certification review. (Hard copy membership cards and certificates are available for a small processing fee).
