USA Swimming’s Club Development Division will host the 2017 Coach Owner Seminar/Workshop at the Olympic Training Center on March 31st, April 1st & 2nd.

This is one of the most important weekends of the year for those attendees who are considering owning their own swim club/business. The seminar/workshop is conducted on two full 8-hour days (Saturday and Sunday). Departure is Monday morning.

This year’s presenters will be sharing their experiences of owning and operating their own swim club:

Mick and Sue Nelson will be welcoming you Friday at 4:30pm with “What’s new with pools & programming”

You will have time to network with other coaches across the country about the future of “swim clubs”.

Insurance is also a very important topic for coaches to gain a better understanding how it works when owning your own swim club. George Ward with USA Swimming will be sharing information on the importance of insurance and what USA Swimming has to offer.
