Faster Swimming through Education!
With your membership in the International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA), you will be given the opportunity to contribute and receive an exceptional, science-based education while fostering an international network of professionals defining the future of swimming.
In addition to the membership status of being a part of ISCA, we offer a wide range of additional programs and services. They include information on clinics and workshops, mentoring programs, job placement service, assistance with team and club management, yearly plans including workouts, swim school development, and a line-up of ISCA championship meets. In addition to pool swimming, we are expanding into open water swimming, Paralympics, and other aquatic disciplines.  
ISCA continues to work with the top international sports scientists, coaches, teachers, and aquatic administrators to update and present new technology as it develops. This information will be available through course work, clinics/workshops, articles, research papers, interviews, ISCA library, and interaction between our members. In addition to the core courses listed below, others are in the works.
Take your coaching to the next level by becoming an ISCA certified coach.
