The first FINA / UANA Masters Coaches Clinic was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in conjunction with the South American Masters Championships.  The South American Masters Championships was an ideal location to host this first clinic, with over 1200 Swimmers representing 130 Clubs throughout South America.

The presentations given by Bill Brenner, US Masters Swimming COO/Director of Education, and Marty Hendrick, US Masters Swimming Coach were outstanding.  There were 50+ coaches from 9 Federations in South America who attended the Clinic.  The clinic lasted 4 hours and they wanted more.  The objective of the clinic was to teach a simple progression of drills for all four competitive strokes, so swimmers and coaches can enjoy swimming and have a healthy lifestyle.  
While there have been many other Coaches Clinics around the world, this was the first Clinic just for Masters Coaches. The objective was to show coaches how to understand the adult athlete and how to teach the adult athlete with a simple drill progression in each stroke.
I wish to thank CONSANAT President Juan Carlos Orihuela for his support, and the support of CONSANAT of Masters Swimming.  Thanks also to Fernando Terrilli, president of the Argentine Swimming Federation for his support of this project.  His administrators, Julio Clement, Secretary General and Sergio Antonini, Vice President, provided  leadership and hospitality to me and our coaches.  Thanks to US Masters Swimming for providing quality instructors for this international project
A final THANK YOU to FINA and UANA for their constant support of Masters Swimming.  
This Clinic was more successful that I could have imagined, and was regarded a "Home Run" !
