Default Effective Coach Communcations

Although I am new to coaching TI swimming, I have been a PSIA certified professional alpine ski instructor of 5 years.

One little tip - when communicating with your students, always have your goggles off (think "mouth open, eyes open"). The PSIA considers direct eye contact when speaking so important that failing to remove your goggles when talking during a certification exam is grounds for failure regardless of the instructor's performance otherwise.
