GAIN Swimming Summit 2020
GAIN is an acronym for Gambetta Athletic Improvement Network.
This is a network that was formed in 2008 to connect professionals
to facilitate learning and sharing of ideas.
Because of Vern Gambetta's work in swimming, we are now creating a specific network devoted to swimming with an emphasis on preparation of the total swimming athlete.
The objective is to provide an educational experience that will significantly advance people's expertise by sharing information with other professionals in a setting that encourages an open exchange of ideas.
