Vote for Wolverines Coach Carle Fierro Nominated Once Again for the 2017 National Age Group Coach of the Year !
Aug 01, 2017
Let the Voting Begin!
In conjunction with The American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA), we are excited to introduce the 120 candidates for the 2017 Fitter and Faster Age Group Swim Coach of the Year Award.
With this award we seek to identify, honor, and give a voice to the top age group coaches in the United States. This year we are evaluating more statistics than ever to ensure a better probability that coaches from smaller teams and markets will be included.
To identify the top age group coaches ASCA used a combination of USA Swimming’s Virtual Club Championship (VCC) team rankings of 10 and Under swimmers through 14 year olds. We have also evaluated USA Swimming’s Top 20 Individual Rankings for swimmers ages 10 and Under through 14 years old.
Using the combined rankings ASCA has identified the top 50 age group teams in the United States. We have also identified the top ranked teams in Local Swim Committees (LSC’s) who do not have a representative team in the top 50 of the VCC. This insures that age group coaches from the entire United States -- all 59 LSC’s are represented. The total number of nominees is approximately 120 individual coaches as many teams have several coaches placing swimmers in the top 20 individual rankings.
The swimming community can see all of the nominees and vote for the Age Group Coach of the Year on fitterandfaster.com through August 15th, 2017.
The popular vote will be combined with the Age Group Nomination Committee’s voting and the top 10 coaches will be invited to the ASCA World Clinic Annual Awards Banquet where the Fitter and Faster Age Group Coach of the Year will be highlighted.
All nominees will be invited to share coaching tips and age group workouts throughout the next year and published on the Fitter and Faster website and promoted through ASCA’s weekly E-Newsletter. We will also spotlight one of the Top 10 Finalists on the Fitter and Faster website each month from October through July.
