Some of the previous topics and panels included:
In a sport where every hundredth of a second counts, sprint knowledge is essential. In a two-part panel format, speakers will share their experience working with sprinters and answer audience questions, as well as questions from coaches around the world.
DISTANCE & OPEN WATER
Coaching for distance and open water events poses unique challenges. Speakers will discuss training, competition management, season planning, recovery and more in a two-part panel format. The session will wrap up with Q&A, responding to questions from the audience and online submissions.
AGE GROUP TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
Age group season planning has many different elements to consider–and age group coaches must also assess physical and mental development factors. The age group panel will discuss concepts relevant to addressing these factors and how to plan a complete season for 8&u through age group seniors. Per usual, audience and pre-submitted questions will be answered in the Q&A portion.
SPORT SCIENCE – THE SCIENCE OF FATIGUE
Leading swimmers to push their athletic capabilities to the point of fatigue is something coaches do every day. Our sport science panel is going to break down the science behind fatigue in swimming. They will discuss ways to limit fatigue, how it relates to recovery, and physiological factors that every coach must be conscious of. They will also talk about how a training program can be adjusted to account for technique changes that normally occur with fatigue.
