On Deck Coaching for Spring Nationals
We need help with on deck coaching at Nationals.
There will be 1 - 2 sprint lanes per course so I am looking for 8 coaches to cover one on each end of Sprint Lanes
We need to cover:
Wednesday from 1:00 to 7:00pm
Thursday - Sunday from 6:00 to 7:45am
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for 1 hour during warmups after 500 free and 400IM.
If you are interested in coaching please send me a note as soon as possible Here and I will send you a link to the schedule.
If you have shirts from previous participation as on-deck coach please bring them along and wear them.
If you do not have one and plan to volunteer please contact me and I will get you one.
Keep in mind that not everyone wants advise so we need to honor their privacy.
While at the starting end of warm ups make sure that the swimmers know that you are available to give them a start. Some will decline.
Also make sure that they are aware that you are available for coaching tips. Let them ask, they will.
The most important role we play is that of Safety.
Make sure proper distance is kept between swimmers.
Make sure that people are aware of swimmers taking backstroke starts.
Make sure that people are only going one way in Sprint Lane. (away from starting blocks.)
