Junior Coaching Program

We are excited to introduce the launch of our Junior Coaching Program.  The purpose of this program will be to find and develop strong coaches for the future of our Swim Club.  Working with our current coaching staff, our new coaches will have a chance to observe our practices as well as develop their own coaching style.

We envision the candidates for this program coming from current Redwing (and other local High School) swimmers as well as from our own Elite swimmers.  In addition to a one season “apprenticeship” type of start, new coaches will also be asked to complete lifeguard training and Level 1 and 2 of the USA Swimming and American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) Certification Program.  We believe this will give them the opportunity to succeed as coaches and ensure our swimmers continue to get quality coaching.
