With input from successful U.S. and international coaches, Hannula presents the latest stroke improvements for greater efficiency and speed as well as new instruction on underwater dolphin kicking techniques. Full practice plans help coaches accomplish more in each training session.

Veteran and beginning coaches will learn how to motivate swimmers, become better communicators, and be prepared for the challenges of competitive meets. Hannula reveals his personal coaching philosophy and helps coaches develop their own code of ethics as they build a winning swimming program in and out of the pool. Detailed advice on how to evaluate swimmers' performances in practice and in competition, as well as the entire swim program, makes this the complete guide to coaching the sport.

No matter where you coach, Coaching Swimming Successfully will be the guide you refer to season after season.
