Building Successful Performance Service Teams

Building Successful Performance Service Teams

Presentation by Rohan Taylor (AUS) to the FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic 2014, Doha (QAT) on 30/11/2014. In 2008, Taylor was employed at Nunawading Swimming Club to set up and manage a High Performance Programme that included: • 20 open-level athletes working towards national and international representation. • 20 national age athletes, 13-16 years old, developing towards national and international representation. • 24 x 12&U athletes who have been talent identified with the key characteristics to develop towards national age group then open-level performances. • Key performance service providers to enhance the development and performance of the athletes and coaches. The role required the set up of a number of key components within the performance pathway of the Nunawading programme that would ensure that the environment and coaches were focused on world’s best practice. Nunawading now has in place an overall system that allows all support service and coaches to drive innovation, resources and knowledge to coaches and athletes on a daily basis, ensuring that each athlete has in place the world's best coaching and support.
Skill Acquisition and Injury Prevention

Skill Acquisition and Injury Prevention

Presentation by Rod Havriluk (USA) to the FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic 2014, Doha (QAT) on 1/12/2014. The technique elements that optimise performance are consistent with preventing injury. Unfortunately, most swimmers (over 95%) have harmful technique elements that stress their shoulders and also limit their performance. Fortunately, there are 'deliberate practice' strategies that can help swimmers master the skills that optimise performance and minimise shoulder stress. Research shows that deliberate practice (DP) strategies also accelerate the skill-learning process. DP strategies for swimming include: precise wording of specific cues; skill-isolation drills; short-distance swims at a slow rate; continual focus on select cues; reinforcement of positive technique elements; feedback about limiting factors; classroom and poolside instruction and analysis; solo practice with and without a coach; task designed to maintain focus in the cognitive and associative learning stages; and replication of superior performance. This presentation includes examples of DP strategies with an emphasis on technique adjustments to prevent shoulder injuries.
The Science of Skills in Swimming

The Science of Skills in Swimming

Presentation by Roald Van der Vliet (NED) to the FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic 2014, Doha (QAT) on 1/12/2014 - a very practical lecture about the use of technology, statistics and science in a high performance surrounding. Using technology in order to be able to give direct feedback to coaches, to make a connection between the experienced performance by an athlete in relation to the real outcome of a start or a turn, is necessary to enhance performance. The lack of 'hard' data and exact times often lead to wrong conclusions and guesses by coaches in the training process. Software, hardware, mathematics and research has to be focused on individual oriented performance monitoring. In this lecture Roald shares findings and lessons learned in the past years.

Presentation by Marcel Wouda (NED) to the FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic 2014, Doha (QAT) on 1/12/2014 Over the past seven years, the National Training Centre and the Sports Innovation Lab (Innosport) in Eindhoven (Netherlands), have worked side-by-side and developed a method to help athletes improve their skills and technique. They have found that by bringing the specialist to the pool, they can accelerate improvement. Explanation of how they do this, how they build this into their yearly periodisation and providing examples from daily workouts.

Sport Nutrition in Aquatics

Sport Nutrition in Aquatics

Presentation by Dr. Margo Mountjoy (CAN) - FINA-Yakult Nutrition to the FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic 2014, Doha (QAT) on 30/11/2015 Many factors contribute to success in sport, including talent, training, motivation and resistance to injury. When highly talented, motivated and well-trained athletes gather for competition, the margin between victory and defeat is usually small. Attention to every detail can make that vital difference, and nutrition is a key element of the serious athlete’s preparation. Diet affects performance in all events, and the foods that we choose in training and competition will affect how well we train and compete. Athletes need to be aware of their nutritional goals and of how they can select an eating strategy to meet those goals. Diet may have its biggest impact on training, and a good diet will help support consistent intensive training while reducing the risk of illness or injury. Good food choices can also promote adaptations in muscle and other tissues in response to the training stimulus. Athletes are all different, and there is no single diet that meets the needs of all athletes at all times. Individual needs also change across the season and athletes must be flexible to accommodate this. This symposium will present practical advice for coaches on nutritional recommendations for the aquatic athlete based on the outcomes of the world's leading experts in sports nutrition which were gathered in London in 2012 on the occasion of the FINA-Yakult consensus meeting. Food is an important part of life, and athletes should enjoy the foods that they eat, confident in the knowledge that they have made wise choices.
