USA Swimming offers this exciting and unique workshop for coaches and board members to learn how to be effective in leading and governing their team. Swim Club leaders work together in learning about new strategies to improve their club. What makes a great swim club? Leadership, shared team philosophy, cohesive coaching staff, board and parent support, organization, a solid financial plan, and overall teamwork. Learn about all of these at the upcoming Club Leadership and Business Management School. This course will be taught by Scott Shea from USA Swimming and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. Topics include mission and vision, roles and responsibilities, finances, evaluation and customer service. Please encourage a club representative, coach and/or Board Members to attend!
Completion of the 101 online course is highly advisable prior to attending a 201 course.

Attendance at this course is required prior to the second year of club membership. It also is strongly encouraged for all club leaders. This is a typical comment that we receive on the course evaluation, "I really wasn't looking forward to spending a beautiful weekend indoors listening to lectures. When the seminar concluded, I walked away re-excited about our team and with a lot of good ideas."
Registration forms need to be returned to the OSI Office by April 21st, 2018.
