Hello Coaches,

I will be hosting a Peer to Peer Coaches conference call on March 15, 2015. Details to be provided later.

What would you like to see discussed during this call? Please submit topics to this thread.

I have coached several Oregon Masters National Teams and the 2014 USMS World Team in Montreal.

How many workouts per week do you coach? Approximately how many swimmers do you coach?
Do you have an assistant coach on deck with you during workouts?
Does your facility have a nursery during workouts?
Does your pool collect coaching fees for you? Is the pool cost included?
Do you accelerate training for either or both of the USMS national meets?
Do you occasionally conduct clinics that have a specific focus?

Do you have suggestions to offer? We strongly encourage suggestions as we’re looking for best practices to share with all USMS coaches

The LMSC Development Committee is asking LMSC Coaches Chairs to send this invitation to the coaches in your respective LMSCs so that you all can join your coach peers in a lively conversation about how you coach your swimmers and help us discover some ‘best practices’ (i.e. ways to do things, not actual swim workouts).



Date and Time: Sunday, March 15, 2015 - 8:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time | 5:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time
MeetingWall: https://www.startmeeting.com/wall/usms_lmsc_development_committee
US Toll Number: (518) 530-1840 (tel:%28518%29%20530-1840) (Please use this if you have free Long Distance)

US Toll-Free Number: (855) 212-0212 (tel:%28855%29%20212-0212)
Meeting ID: 128-531-819#
At the scheduled date and time of the meeting, dial into the conference line. When prompted, enter the meeting ID. If you wish to participate using your computer with a headset, “Join” from the "Meeting Wall" link above (a software download is required). Then Click the Green button from the app to connect.

Some questions to ponder prior to the call:


How can your Local Masters Swimming Committee better support your efforts to provide Masters Swim programming?
What successes have you had getting your swimmers to participate in USMS programs outside of meets?
What challenges do you have expanding your program? Or conversely, keeping it going?
Do you accelerate training for either or both of the USMS national meets?
Do you occasionally conduct clinics that have a specific focus?
Do you have suggestions to offer? We strongly encourage suggestions as we’re looking for best practices to share with all USMS coaches.

Ways you can get your best practice item into the conversation:
Share it at the teleconference with your peers
Post it to the USMS Coaching Forum (http://forums.usms.org/showthread.php?24982-Peer-to-Peer-Conference-Call-for-Coaches) by going to usms.org (http://usms.org/) –click Forums (top right corner) – scroll to Coaching (in the "General" topics section) – scroll to Peer to Peer Conference Call for Coaches.
Email your question in advance to Tim Waud (twaud@usms.org); he can bring it up on the call.


We look forward to having you be part of the conversation!
