Why Education is Important to our Profession
Research is constantly showing better, more effective, and safer ways to help swimmers complete at the highest levels. ISCA is leading the way for coaches to use this research to become better coaches. The ISCA education program not only builds on each coach’s current level of education and experience, but also complements programs offered by USA Swimming, ASCA, FINA, and other national coaches organizations. Our education program is designed for career development, giving coaches essential tools and knowledge to be more effective. Carefully curated courses have been reviewed by both coaches and scientists for accuracy and applicability.
There are three core disciplines in the ISCA coach certification program: Biomechanics, Physiology, and Sports Psychology. To become an ISCA Certified Coach, you will build your education in these disciplines and learn how to apply scientific principles and research to your daily coaching strategy.
