TSA COACHES CLINIC
Wednesday, May 24, 2006
Brier Creek Country Club
KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY:
(Fund raising, social activities, snack sales,
swim meet officials, team banquet)
(Age group specific, stroke specific, lane
specific, administrative tasks, etc.)
(“Intense fun” to “fun intensity”)
(list needs in detail)
Source: The Swim Coaches Bible
Self-confidence and self-esteem are the two most important gifts we can nurture in others and within ourselves! – Jean Freeman
Build confidence through fun. Younger swimmers need emphasis on skills so they can gain confidence. Small rewards help inspire teamwork along the way. As swimmers get older, turn their conditioning into a game.
“We cannot do great things on this earth. We can only do little things with great love.”
- Mother Teresa
Focus on that which you can do right now and try to keep a “hundred year view” (will this moment be remembered 100 years from now?).
-- Shane Gould, 3x Olympic Gold Medalist

TSA Rules can be found on the TSA website at this URL address:
.1 Coaches are responsible for the conduct of their swimmers and must maintain control over them at all times.
.2 Coaches are responsible for insuring that swimmers remain in their designated areas during meets.
.3 Coaches shall inform swimmers of the reason for their disqualification.
.4 Coaches shall instruct swimmers to exit the pool after completing their race but to remain in their lane until released by an official.
204.2.1 – Once swimmers have been placed in the control of the clerk of course, coaching by a team coach may only be done from the side of the pool. Coaching of relay starts from the starting line may be done only by a member of that relay team and not by a coach.
204.2.2 – Coaches are expected to exhibit proper sportsmanship at all times. Display of unsportsmanlike conduct or comments will not be tolerated. The coach’s TSA representative will speak to the coach one time per meet. A second display of unsportsmanlike conduct or comment will result in the coach’s removal from the property. Two removals in a season would require the coach to become before the executive board of TSA with their TSA Representative.
304.1 Club Affiliation
.1 To be a swim team member, a person must be eligible for full club privileges. Such eligibility shall be based on the payment of club dues by the person or his/her family. It shall further be based on an individual swimming under a club plan offered and publicized to the universe of a club’s prospective members.
.2 A person may swim for only one club during a season. If the swimmer has individual and family memberships in different clubs, the swimmer must swim for the club in which the family holds a membership. If the swimmer belongs to more than one club through family memberships, the swimmer is free to choose the club for which he/she will swim. The first event in which the swimmer participates will determine club membership for the entire season.
304.2 Payment of Club Dues
.1 A club may not pay or forgive any part of the dues for a person or his/her family with the intent of enlisting that person as a swimmer or as a combined swimmer/coach or as a swimmer/staff member. Coaches in this context shall include assistants as well as head coaches.
.1 A coach may not swim for the club he/she is coaching unless he/she meets all the criteria for team membership. Coach, in this context, shall include assistants as well as head coaches.
Each coach on a team contributes in unique ways. Some may be great at conditioning swimmers, others may be better at teaching technique. Duties of staff should be directed to the strengths of each coach. All coaches must share some basic responsibilities while others are the duty of the head coach to direct.
