This is the new forum for the Virginia LMSC Coaches. Tell us what has been working in your program, tips, questions, workouts, comments. We can all learn from the successes (and mistakes) of others so pass the information along.

Are you USMS certified? If not, would you like to be?
Now that there is on offical USMS certification course I would like to see a push from the LMSC to get all of our coaches certified. I think the best way to do this would be to have a certification course right here in Virginia.
Would you attend a USMS certification course if it was closer to you?

I'd be happy to host such an event. I think it is a great idea. What has become of this idea? We have a nice pool, classrooms, cheap rooms (could ask team members to host participants.)

We have used up our coaches budget for this year. Our next annual meeting is in the fall (Oct or Nov), when next year's budget is approved. I'm sure we'll consider this idea then.

I post my workouts under the "Workouts" section of the Discussion Forum. It has encouraged several of my swimmers who are not USMS members to join so they have access to workouts. I get some good ideas from reading the posted workouts.
