Welcome to “Coaches Corner”, here our coaches will post their coaching tips, swimming technique descriptions, videos, parent education information and lots more! 

It is great hear from someone who produced a good number of Olympic Champions, that the journey is the foundation and achievement pillar.  In this video, as a Hall of Fame Coach, five-time ASCA Coach of the Year and a three-time member of the U.S. Olympic Team, Bob Bowman knows a thing or two about what it truly means to be a champion.  As the renowned coach of Michael Phelps' entire swimming career, hear how coaches are able to identify the unique talents of aspiring athletes  - Coach Eduardo


To be a parent of a swimmer sometimes make us a “swimming expert”.  However between parents rules and coaches rules are so many attributions that can make parents very busy without try to be a parent coach. 

This article brings “10 things that parents can and cannot control” on their lovely swimmers.  I hope you enjoy this topic!!! - Coach Eduardo


During your training is important that you have everything in place to keep your focus and maximise the training benefits - technical tips, correct equipment, following the program with right intensity and commitment, and so on.

However, one element is paramount, your hydration!!!  Swimmers can lose more than 1 litre of fluids during one hour of swimming training.  To perform well, you need to train well - to train well, you need to “be well”: Rested and Hydrated!!!  Have a look at this great article on hydration for swimmers Coach Eduardo


At the beginning of our season, this 'My Magic Sports Kit' is a great video for parents, coaches and sports providers to share.

It is a good reminder that children are out there to enjoy sport, have fun and make friends - Coach Eduardo
