This website, Read.SwimISCA.org, harbors a closed group of validated members of the Swim Coaches Idea Exchange Group. The members can freely opt-into this group by gaining entry with a super-short prerequisite course and quiz.
Selected archives of the Facebook group, Swim Coaches Idea Exchange, are able to be distilled into summary postings and re-positioned here.
- No admission fees are charged.
- This web-based archives are presented as a free-flowing course. You navigate to various lessons as desired without needing to go in a prescribed order.
- The lion's share of the discussions from the Facebook group should remain on the Facebook group.
- This service exists, in part, to make the valued content and archives more robust. Archives present a structural weakness of the Facebook platform.
- The web space and bandwidth for this archive collection is provided by ISCA. However, ISCA membership and the ISCA Members Library are completly different services.
- Of course, key content and discussions from the past and present can be edited and migrated here for others see. All help is appreciated in this open-source effort. As you notice ideas and discussions with long-term appeal, refine them and repost here.
- Hopefully the presentation of ideas in this collection make it easier for coaches to deploy them within their own programs.
- Report back on your successes, and failures. Sustain the conversations. Cross-link when appropriate. Add to the threads in the Facebook group, and, make a mention of the links to the refined, summary lessons here as well.
