Do you love sharing knowledge, teaching others, and giving back to the sport you love? Do you get excited when a teammate masters a new technique? Do you always seem to be the leader of your workout group? Are you the one who writes the workouts? If yes, you might make a good Masters coach.
USMS provides an educational program for Masters coaches. The course, developed by Masters coaches, educates coaches working with adult fitness and competitive swimmers. Whether you are new to coaching or are an experienced coach seeking professional development, the educational program will help you make the most of the Masters swimming experience.
The course is not a requirement to be a Masters coach. However, it is a requirement if you wish to become certified as a Masters coach. Coach certification comes with many benefits, including one-on-one support from our Club and Coach Services division and substantial discounts from our sponsor partners.
Regardless of your intent to become certified (or not), all USMS coaches and members are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the course.
