View Full Version : On-Deck Coaches needed for Gresham!

July 4th, 2008, 10:07 PM
Are you a coach who's planning on making the trip to Portland for Nationals this Summer? If so, we need your help!

The USMS Coaches Committee, through the On-Deck Coaching Program, offers on-deck coaching assistance for swimmers during warm-ups at USMS National Championship Events and at the annual United States Aquatic Sports (USAS) Convention. Coaches monitor the sprint lanes during the early morning warm-ups at USMS Nationals, giving swimmers start commands and timing sprints or pace repeats if requested. All participating coaches are given a special USMS Coaches T-shirt, great for being recognized on deck (while this didn't quite happen in Austin, we hope that our t-shirts don't get lost in transit this summer).

We are still very much in need of coaches for this meet, and can always use more help. Signing up is easy. Check out the sign-up form at http://www.usms.org/coach/ondeck.php. You can (a) fill it out and mail it in or (b) simply email the required information to ODC Coordinator Chris Colburn at chriscolburn AT usms DOT org. Please note that email is the preferred method of submission :-)

We're still looking for coaches! Please sign up soon. You don't need to volunteer all four days. Just pick a day or days when you can help and sign up! Those of you who volunteer will receive more details via email before you arrive at the meet.

Thanks in advance for your help!
