Swim Empowered

NEW THIS YEAR:  a session each hour for athletes or parents offered by Gold Medalist Olympic Swimmer at Convention Center!  This year’s Swimposium offers Utah Swimming members a unique opportunity to experience elite swimming. Three Olympic Gold-Medalist Athletes will be teaching and training our athletes, parents, and coaches on October 13, 2018 at the Utah Valley Convention Center.  This is a chance to have a connection to fast swimming as well as learn good information.  Come and learn what elite swimmers are doing, how they’re doing it, and why that matters for any athlete at any level of development.  

This year’s Swimposium theme is “Swim Empowered.”  The day will offer more than 40 classes on a variety of subjects, including what elite performance looks like, nutrition for athletes, technique, being a good swim parent, developing a volunteer base, coach and official training, and much more.  

Presenters

In addition to Olympic Gold-Medalist presenters, Josh Davis, Dana Vollmer, and Nathan Adrian, we have presenters from Utah Swimming and BYU to share information for parents and athletes: Shari Skabelund, Todd Etherington, Rachel Higginson, Wane Oviatt, Cathy Vaughan, and more.  A highlight of Swimposium is the keynote address by Nathan Adrian and Josh Davis. 

Coach Training

This year, coaches from Utah Swimming will share their training methods.  Several topics covered throughout the day. Learn from coaches in the state and how to apply these ideas to your program.
