Thread: Looking for a professional swimming coach

  1. #1

    Looking for a professional swimming coach

    My daughter needs some work on her swimming techniques. Swim mechanics etc. WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR LEARNING HOW TO SWIM. We are looking for someone who would be starting with someone who already knows everything, but needs some practice in breast/back/free/butterfly etc...

    There is a league, the coaches of those teams might be able to recommend someone. You could also contact the high school coaches.
    Maybe at the Great Mills Pool they might have listings.
    I'm not sure you are going to have a lot of luck finding a top notch coach in this area to the point there is a call for "professional" coaches.
    There may be an AAU club?

    CBAC which practices at St Marys College. I would call the college. They should have a contact.

    We live in Calvert County, but we are willing to travel, mainly she is in a swim team, but she needs some supplement.

    Our Son is on the CBAC swim team with a multitude of certified coaches from the beginner (where they know the strokes but need refinement) to the Advanced. We have many parents that travel from Calvert to swim with CBAC as our facilities and coaches are hard to beat.

    Not sure if any of them work one on one with swimmers, but will do exactly what you are looking for after an evaluation of where your daughter fits into one of our groups. We currently swim Copper (know how to swim but need to work on technique and stamina), then they progress by skill, age and experience through Bronze Silver and Gold. Our Copper swimmers (son included) swim an hour up to 5 times a week, either beginning or ending with a 500m freestyle swim, and working all four strokes, starting and turns.. the other groups swim 1.5 hours five days a week and Silver and Gold can also swim Saturday and Sunday.

    CBAC offers a free trial period if you want to bring your daughter down to try our pool and see what you think about the coaches.

    We don't know any different, but talking to other parents that travel to us, and pass two or three other teams on the way here, there must be something to it. We're lucky enough that our son started with lessons at the same pool through Seneca Swim School, and moved over to the CBAC swim team about 2 years ago (he's now 9). We LOVE his coaches, and what the future holds for him.

    CBAC is hosting a swim meet this coming weekend (the MD LSC Senior Championship) at St. Mary's College's Athletic & Recreation Complex. There will be hundreds of great swimmers there competing for the chance to progress through the other swimming meets and opportunities.

    You should come down to see the meet, and to see if it is a group that she'd be interested in joining.

    And to reiterate, CBAC offers the opportunity for your child to swim UP TO 5 evenings per week. It's up to you to pick the days that you want to go to....the fee is the same for one day per week, or five days per week.
    .

    I like to be right.

    Everyone's entitled to my opinion.

    If you don't have anything nice to say to someone, then you need to STFU.

    How about the new team Naval Academy (South). They swim at Edward T. Hall? It's pretty much Naval Academy that swims in Annapolis, but they are in Edward T. Hall.

    Since Erik Collins stopped coaching at Edward T. Hall, most of the year-round swimmers I know have switched to CBAC.
