About the ISCA TYR Elite Showcase Classic and The International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA):
The ISCA TYR Elite Showcase Classic is a high level 14 & Under meet that is held yearly at the North Shore Aquatic Complex in St. Petersburg, Florida. In 2018, NBAC won both the Girls Team Title and the Combined Team Title.
The International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA) was founded in 2000 as a not-for-profit association. Founding Board of Directors identified a gap in communication between the coaching community and the swim science community. Research and information that is crucial to better swimming wasn’t being delivered in a format that was useful and applicable to coaches. ISCA was founded with the goal of bridging the gap between swim coaches and sports science.
