About this product
- DescriptionThis title presents a new set of commandments for swim coaches. In the ten years since the original volume of the Swim Coaches Bible was published swimming records have been smashed and coaching techniques have been constantly evolving, so rather than update the old version, it was decided to replace it with a completely new one. The result is The Swim Coaching Bible, Volume II , a one-source reference book, with each contributing author developing their chapters according to their own successful coaching experiences. At least 15 of these authors have coached either world record holders or Olympic Champions and often both. Their biographies are success stories of great achievements and the new chapter topics cover the essence of what it takes to be a successful coach. The second volume of The Swim Coaching Bible is destined to become the most valuable reference book in every swimming coach library.
- Author BiographyDick Hannula is one of the most succesful high school and club coaches in the history of swimming. While serving as the boys' swimming coach at Wilson High School in Tacoma, Washington, from 1959 to 1983, Hannula racked up the longest high school undefeated record of 323 consecutive wins. Nort Thornton is the head men's swimming coach at the University of California at Berkeley, where he has coached them to two NCAA Championships and was named the NCAA Coach of the Year in 1979 and 1980. An inductee into the International Swimming Hall of Fame, he has coached the U.S. national team at the Olympics and Pan American Games.
