Are you a coach who is headed to Indianapolis for Long Course Nationals? If so, we need your help!

Spots are available for all five days, but we especially need help on Thursday, August 6th and Monday, August 10... we need at least one more person each of those days!

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.

We can always use more help, so sign up soon! Signing up is easy. You can sign up online at https://www.clubassistant.com/club/form/usms_verify.cfm?c=1227&form_type=Event%20Registration&cid=26771
For more information about the program, check out
http://www.usms.org/coach/ondeck.php.

A link to the above online registration and a PDF with expectations for coaches can be found there. If you have questions, feel free to direct them to me at chriscolburn AT gmail DOT com.

We're always looking for coaches! Please sign up soon. You don't need to volunteer all five 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, and we'll see you at the meet!

I can be an on deck coach for Monday. Not sure how much coaching is needed by those crazy distance folks.

Make sure you sign up online! It's a lot easier to keep the data straight :)

We're still looking for one person to help out on Thursday, 8/6 and Monday, 8/10. The swimmers really appreciate the assistance (and so will I). If you have questions about On-Deck Coaching, please don't hesitate to contact me at coaches AT usms DOT org!
