Good Vs Bad Swimming Coach
Something that you do not think is a big deal. Something that appears innocuous and harmless. Something you do that’s louder than words. The truth is, it drowns out anything you might say. It can be the matter that keeps you from enhancing, can have actual physical effects on your own body, give the opposition a jerk of self-confidence, and even perpetuate the beliefs you have about yourself. Your trainer ribs you for it. Your parents give you heck for it. And even your swimming coach make sure to point it out. It’s awful body language.
The crossed arms. The grumbling under your breath. The rolled over shoulders. Eyes to the ground. The grouchiness. But you might not understand how much of an effect this sort of body language hasn’t only on you but on the team around you.

What lousy body language ends up saying about us:
- We are not on the same page as the remaining portion of the group.
- We do not believe in the workout, do not feel like doing it, cannot be worried.
- It tells the competition everything they should understand about whether or not we are going to swim fast.
- The way we train is a startlingly accurate portrayal of how we compete.
- The way you perform your turns when you’re exhausted or unfocused at training is comparable to the way you are going to do them when they’re exhausted at the end of a race.
- Long before you ever get up on the blocks to compete you’re building your race. Piece by piece, day by day through the grind of two-a-days of long course swimming and 5,000m sessions you’re instilling the habits that your body will rely on when you compete.

Key Points for swimmers
- Improve your self-coaching
- Get Tight With Your Teammates
- Stay True to Your Love of The Sport
Challenge or support each swimmer to be better technically and personally every single day. Address a specialized problem and focus intently on it, as well as talk to children singly or as a group about concepts like leadership/direction, work ethic, reaching out to a teammate, or helping somehow. This combined strategy transfers the team forward when it comes to performance and culture, and link coach to swimmer and swimmer to team. The best test of coaching character is how they talk about their swimmers behind their backs. I’ve known a couple coaches who mostly grumbled about their swimmers. This grumbling usually took one of two forms: complaining about how they’re not working hard enough, or how they’re not tough enough. You can always find something good as well as bad to say about anybody. Every team has a kid or two who is a handful, and coaches get understandably frustrated with them. But if you get a coach who is negative about most of the kids, you’ve got a bad swimming coach.
