CSCA Continues Online Delivery With Upcoming Stroke Sessions, Partnership with AENQ


Following the success of the first phase of online learning sessions being offered by the CSCA we are pleased to announce the upcoming schedule of talks. 


Over 700 coaches have participated in our first series of talks over the past six weeks.  Each session is recorded and added to our video library within 24 hours of the talk being completed.  These talks, along with over 150 others, are available free of charge to our members by signing in at  We are confident that there is something helpful for all coaches within the library. 


We are also pleased to announce a partnership with the Quebec Swim Coaches Association (AENQ) to expand on our delivery and include French language content.   "The response to our online sessions has been very positive and we are very excited to partner with the AENQ to expand on this delivery for our membership." said CSCA Executive Director Chris Hindmarch-Watson.  "The AENQ has established a strong leadership role with swim coaches in Quebec and we look forward to working closely with them moving forward." 


The series of seven French language sessions will run every Thursday from June 18 through July 30 at 10am Eastern and feature a variety of topics.  These Sessions will also be recorded and made available in the CSCA Video Library and are open to all CSCA members.  Registration for these sessions is available by contacting the AENQ directly.  We thank the AENQ for their partnership in the delivery of professional development.  


The CSCA has also produced the Coaches in the Square series which are recorded and added directly to our video library.  To date we have conducted episodes with U-Sport Coaches, Dryland during Covid-19, an Apprenticeship Program roundtable and Women in Coaching discussion. 


Over the next week the CSCA will also launch a new segment titled “1 Thing.”  We will be conducting interviews with coaches about one specific topic of their choice.  These will be released on Wednesday’s and available as part of the video library.  Our first episode will feature a conversation with Linda Kiefer from the University of Toronto!
