Just as important as a coach’s education is the parent’s education.  USA Swimming has
provided all teams various resources ranging from what tech suits can my child wear to
nutrition to mental health. If you have a chance, we highly recommend that every parent
takes the time to go through a few of these articles. Not only will it help improve your
experience, but that of your swimmers.
