#coachmikepodcast episode 41

Morgan Knabe is my guest this week. We chat a little bit about the end of his career and follow his coaching career in Australia while he searches for coaching knowledge. Needless to say, Australia is a very different coaching environment!

#coachmikepodcast episode 40

Thank you everyone for your continued support of my crazy opinions and talking out of my ass. Looks like you are twice as interested in my opinions than in real information from experts like Frank Busch. In any event, I thank you for your support.

This week I chat with NCAA medalist from Indiana (by way of CASCADE in Calgary), Brooklynn Snodgrass. We discuss her success at NCAAs, her recruitment process, culture shock, support of Canadians in an American environment and moving forward into World Championships Trials next week. Brooklynn is a great athlete and a fantastic sport (computer problems forced her to do this interview twice - but she was happy to do it). Please join me in wishing her luck at World Trials.

#coachmikepodcast episode 39

In this episode, I announce my new social media project through Google+: The Canadian Swim Coaching Community. My idea here is to provide a social network dedicated to allowing Canadian Coaches to network and share opinions, information and ideas. Although this is an effort to get Canadian Swim Coaches connected, coaches from anywhere and any sport are welcome.

More importantly, I explore Swimming Canada's decision to place Major Games Trials right after NCAAs. Many of our best youth athletes (the ones that made Canada's Junior World Team place 2nd 2 years ago) are now swimming at NCAAs. Brittany MacLean & Sinead Russell (2 of Canada's only Olympic Finalists) are competing this weekend and they're expected to make the World team in 2 weeks. The USA and Britain both have their trials much later in the season. Are we making a mistake?

My round table includes Tom Rushton of the Montreal Training Centre, Don Burton of the University of Guelph, Dave Ling of TSC and Sean Baker of OAK. The point here is to bring the issue to light and to solicit opinions and ideas. Please feel free to login with Facebook and comment below... but be aware that anything you send to me may be read on the air.

#coachmikepodcast episode 38

This week I play the "best of" clips from Frank Busch's speech at FINA's Golden Coach's Conference in October 2012. Frank Busch is the Nation Team Director for USA Swimming and has achieved quite a bit as a coach on his own. He talks a little bit about starts, turns, push offs, coaching and athlete development.

This audio was taken from a youtube video available on line. Please visit this blog link for links to all the videos. I do not claim rights to this audio, I've just compiled the best bits to deliver the info to you in a convenient template and a time efficient manner: a reminder that I actually loose money doing this podcast - the only gain I get is seeing the benefit of the info going to good use and wider consumption.
