Provide an extensive educational gift to all the members of your swim coaching staff.

While few are meeting in person, going to meets and doing typical swim team activities this is the time to dive into the 200-plus lessons in the Global Library for ISCA Members. 

This isn't another Zoom Meeting nor Webinar. 

Teams are going out of business. Coaches are stepping out of the profession. Connections are becoming lost in the distance and lack of normal schedules.

When it comes time to resume swim leagues and regular sessions, the depth of talented leadership in the coaching ranks is going to be depleted. Experts are going to need to be on hand and ready to navigate the rebirth of the programs, post pandemic.

Younger coaches and rookie coaches are going to get plenty of insights from the lessons in the Global Library for ISCA Members.

Timeless lessons fill this collection. 

The lessons and content covers a wide range of topics. Plus, swim staffs are encouraged to assign readings and then hold their own discussions. Figure out what fits within your program. 

Going further, the lessons can be put to use in your team meetings and practices. 

Conventional wisdom can be a springboard. Build upon the ideas for your team. Customize and criticize. Build your brand with your team by putting your own twist to the outcomes. Then, document what you've accomplished and add those thoughts to the lessons.

The Global Library is designed to be a dynamic, living document that freely accepts the input from other ISCA Members -- and scientists too.

The Global Library presents a plain, clear, and comprehensive path to staff and league advancements. You won't be disappointed.

Sign-Up Logistics

After you sign up yourself, then be ready to input the names and email addresses of your staff. And, if you opt to upgrade to the league or state tier, get ready to input those names and emails as well.


Of course, it will be hard to know every coach in your league or state. Fear not. ISCA will work with you and provide a coupon code. With the coupon code, the others who you missed in the original sign-up form can still opt-in to this offer with your package.


However, all the outreach and sign-ups need to be completed within the terms of this offer by January 11, 2021. Don't delay.

The spike in the pandemic and the resulting lockdowns give coaches from around the world plenty of time to dive into the new Global Library. 

In Switzerland, gatherings are limited to 5 or fewer people until the end of January.


In the UK, the stages of the lockdown are so severe, the Christmas and Boxing Day gatherings are not permitted among families.


The Global Library for ISCA Members has been in development for a few years. The pandemic has allowed devote efforts to craft the lessons. 


Let's keep our swimming brains and networks engaged in the weeks to come.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Is there a money back guarantee?

Because of the low cost of the Counterattack ISCA Memberships, there are no money back guarantees.

With the normal, $75 annual ISCA Memberships, a money back guarantee has never been requested. ISCA is a nonprofit membership organization. However, if you need a refund, one can be provided within 3 weeks of a payment.

Does everyone on the staff use the same login?

No. Each member of the staff gets his or her own login with a username and password. 

The Learning Management System allows users to take quizzes, track progress, leave comments. Everyone should have their own login.

Is the Global Library an app that needs to be downloaded?

No. The Global Library is a web-based LMS. It runs well on desktop computers, tablets and modern mobile phones. 

There is no need to download any extra software. Just use your web browser.

ISCA does has an app now. The Global Library is not yet on that app. Get the ISCA mobile app and read more at https://App.SwimISCA.org.

Do you need to be on the internet to read the Global Library?

Yes. The Global Library is an online course. You need to be connected to the internet to see the lessons and follow the links.

What are the sales and sign-up deadlines?

The counterattack sales offer ends at the end of the day, January 11, 2021. No sales nor individual sign-ups can occur after that date. The coupons expire. The sales pages are going to be made inactive.

The standing offer to join ISCA is $75 per year and that will still be available.

Act now! Give your fellow coaches time to sign up, login and enjoy educational enrichment. 

Can different computers and devices be used with the same user?

Yes. Start the course on any device and then switch as you desire. The progress is tied to your username and password. You can use that username and password on any device and switch as you desire.

I have an idea for a lesson. Can I enter it into the Global Library?

Yes. 
Your webinars, interviews, videos and articles -- even Ebooks -- can be included into the Global Library for ISCA Members. 

Or, if it makes sense, another mini-course can be created within our platforms and sites. 

Contact us at Webmaster-Team@SwimISCA.com.

What does the future hold for the Global Library?

Expansion is still happening. The Library is at version 1.0 in the fall of 2020. Plenty of additional lessons are put into the Library every week. 

Available content is on-hand and in-house to double the size of the Global Library by July 1, 2021. 

What is the difference among the STAFF, the LEAGUE and the STATE / LSC tiers.

The staff investment, Tier 1, is $25. All the names and email address of the coaches on your staff need to be entered into the form that follows post sale transaction. You should know the names and emails of you own staff and be able to present them with the form.

Tier 2 investment of $50, gives staff and league-wide inclusion. The buyer gets 50 unique coupon codes to share to your network. You customize your coupon text. For example you could pick, "Go Buckeye Swimming" or "Lincoln Land Conference 2021." 

Tier 3, includes your staff entry and league-wide entries as well as 200 unique coupon codes to share to your network. Cost is $150.

Are you following the CDC Guidelines?

Of course. Yes. 

This counterattack plan is following the CDC guidelines -- fully -- as it is suggesting HOME STUDY. And, reaching out to others via networking online.

These are good times for checking in one each other via a text or email. Then, the content gives plenty to talk about in the remote COURSE. Plus, there are a few specific lessons in our course that talk about a return to swimming post Covid.

The counterattack in going to be needed with the inactivity -- when the time is right. Perhaps by March 1, 2021? Now it the time for planning ahead.

Webmaster's Note

Coaches, we respect your time, effort and challenges you face. Coaches have many roles in the lives of the athletes, students and larger communities.


ISCA's sweet spot in the marketplace has been:

  • Hosting of top-flight meets, and 
  • Connecting the science-advisory committee to the swim coaches -- especially at ISCA's sport-science conferences.

With the recent expansion and overhaul of the Global Library for ISCA Members, gives another ISCA role in the service to the aquatic community. The exploration of the content in this learning management system provides a worthy experience. 

  1. The immediate challenge is to share coupon codes, gain access, login with passwords and study the materials. 
  2. The longer view and challenge for you is to become a lesson contributor. 

Help sustain this project.
