The American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) just released the list below for upcoming coaching clinics.

These are excellent opportunities for masters coaches to gain knowledge and exchange ideas with coaches of all levels in the sport.
Try not to be mislead by the age-group/collegiate/Olympic descriptions for the courses or presenters.
If a masters swim coach goes into the clinic looking to gather information that can be used in a masters swimming program, (and there is plenty) the experience will be worthwhile.

LMSCs around the country are beginning to host USMS Coaches Certification sessions.
Last year over 100 USMS coaches were certified.
These ASCA Clinics can be used as continuing education.
Also as inspiration and motivation for young and new individuals to get involved in coaching Masters level swimming. Coaches might consider inviting along a "thinking" masters swimmer who could be a potential future assistant coach!

I want to get certified to coach, looking to start the training at the beginning/basic level somewhere around the southeast/mid-atlantic. Any advice would be appreciated.
