July was a busy month of swimming with the first end of season meets for plenty of club teams everywhere and another championship starting at the end of the month in Birmingham with the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Congratulations to Coach Ian Wright who’s athlete from the City of Glasgow Swim Team brought home hardware and who’s now moving to a new and exciting position as National Coach with Scottish Swimming.
Swiss Junior Nationals at the end of July was the last meet for our own Coach Nico with Swim Regio Solothurn. His athletes had a successful showing and came out strong at the end of a two year period that was heavily marked by the global pandemic. You can find the workouts providing insights into two full seasons with the team in Solothurn in our archives.
Our platform also experienced a good month with pageviews increasing to 8k and the number of visitors growing by over 50% compared to last month. And although swimming coaches and the people in our community must have been busy, they also spent more time on our platform on average during July.
As a “service” to the swimming coaches, we want to share some of the upcoming opportunities to attend conferences and learn from the best in our sport.
– NZSCTA Conference, Aug 27-28, 2022 in Auckland
– ASCA World Clinic, Sep 7-11, 2022 in Las Vegas
– SWIMCON22 by Swim Coaches and Teachers Australia, Sep 17-20, 2022 at the Gold Coast

At the time of publishing this monthly roundup, we have plans to be in attendance at SWIMCON22 in Australia and hope to catch-up with some of you in person.
