View Full Version : On-Deck Coaches Needed in Atlanta!

May 13th, 2010, 09:58 AM
Are you a coach who is headed to Atlanta for Short Course Nationals? If so, we need your help!

Spots are still available for all four days... come on out and lend a hand!

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 (in Atlanta, the T-shirts are bright orange.. you won't be able to miss 'em).

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/clinics.cfm?c=1227

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 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, and we'll see you at the meet!
