The Para Swimming Coaches Certification program (PSCC) is an educational program to supplement traditional swimming coach education. It is designed for coaches seeking to further develop their coaching knowledge, skills when coaching swimmers with a disability, and gain an understanding of the governance and differences that exist in the para swimming community.
The program is designed as a hierarchy of learning that corresponds to the different levels of para swimmer development. It is a blend of on-line virtual presentations and in-person sessions with a focus on case studies, video, and experiential learning. There are four (4) levels. The key prerequisite requirements are basic sport knowledge and USA Swimming coach membership in good standing. The program aims to expand the knowledge and experience of coaches coaching swimmers with disabilities.
