FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic, Doha (Qatar) Sunday 30 November - Monday 1 December

The clinic includes the following sessions:

08:30-09:30 – Breakfast
09:30-09:45 – Opening Speech
Speaker: Dr. Julio Maglione

Location: Main Aquatics Conference Auditorium
09:45-11:00 – Modern Breaststroke Using the Example of Cameron vd Burgh
Speaker: Dirk Lange (GER)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

This presentation discusses relevant training content and tools using the example of the specific special race skills used by Olympic, Commonwealth Champion and World Record Holder Cameron vd Burgh (London 2012 and Barcelona 2013).

Based on a comparison of the 2012 and 2013 seasons, where vd Burgh became Olympic Champion as well as World Champion, are general discharges formed to modern breaststroke. The question is: is vd Burgh the future and is he the perfect example of a modern breaststroker? 

The presentation will show practical workout contents from vd Burgh, as well as an extensive analysis of his Olympic and World Championship races.

The essential idea of the training philosophy is the 'Aerobic Stimulance Training' (AST). Here, although the aerobic capacity is permanently refreshed by special trainings, the workouts are not destroying vd Burgh's real strengths: the physical fitness and the total clean speed. 

The trick is to get the right balance between uploading aerobic capacity and using speed, technique and gym tools with the AST Conception.
11:00-11:30 – Break
11:30-12:45 – Preparation Plan: Training vs Competition Mix
Speaker: Graham Hill (RSA)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium
13:00-14:00 – Lunch
14:15-15:30 – Science and Innovation of Sprint Coaching
Speaker: Andrea Di Nino (ITA)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

A.D.N Swim Project and my coaching career are based on the strong co-operation between my daily coaching on the pool deck and the daily support and contribution of the best specialists in all fields (prevention/rehab, testing in and out of the water, video analysis). 

For a long time now, it has not been acceptable in any professional sport (including swimming) for the coach to make a decision based on his or her own feeling.

Even the best coach in the world needs to have around them the most innovative group of specialists in order to create a modern and scientific team with the capacity to cover all the areas of the swimming performances.

If this is important in swimming, it is more crucial in the sprint distances where even a small mistake, not visible to the human eye, could be the end of a swimmer's Olympic dream.
15:30-16:00 – Break
16:00-17:15 – Building Successful Performance Service Teams
Speaker: Rohan Taylor (AUS)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

In 2008, I was employed at Nunawading Swimming Club to set up and manage a High Performance Programme that included:

• 20 open-level athletes working towards national and international representation.

• 20 national age athletes, 13-16 years old, developing towards national and international representation.

• 24 x 12 and under athletes who have been talent identified with the key characteristics to develop towards national age group then open-level performances. 

• Key performance service providers to enhance the development and performance of the athletes and coaches.

The role required the set up of a number of key components within the performance pathway of the Nunawading programme that would ensure that the environment and coaches were focused on world’s best practice. 

Nunawading now has in place an overall system that allows all support service and coaches to drive innovation, resources and knowledge to coaches and athletes on a daily basis, ensuring that each athlete has in place the world's best coaching and support.
17:15-17:45 – FINA-Yakult Nutrition
Speaker: Dr. Margo Mountjoy (CAN)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

Many factors contribute to success in sport, including talent, training, motivation and resistance to injury. When highly talented, motivated and well-trained athletes gather for competition, the margin between victory and defeat is usually small. Attention to every detail can make that vital difference, and nutrition is a key element of the serious athlete’s preparation.

Diet affects performance in all events, and the foods that we choose in training and competition will affect how well we train and compete. Athletes need to be aware of their nutritional goals and of how they can select an eating strategy to meet those goals.

Diet may have its biggest impact on training, and a good diet will help support consistent intensive training while reducing the risk of illness or injury. Good food choices can also promote adaptations in muscle and other tissues in response to the training stimulus.

Athletes are all different, and there is no single diet that meets the needs of all athletes at all times. Individual needs also change across the season and athletes must be flexible to accommodate this.

This symposium will present practical advice for coaches on nutritional recommendations for the aquatic athlete based on the outcomes of the world's leading experts in sports nutrition which were gathered in London in 2012 on the occasion of the FINA-Yakult consensus meeting.

Food is an important part of life, and athletes should enjoy the foods that they eat, confident in the knowledge that they have made wise choices.
08:30-09:30 – Breakfast
09:45-11:00 – Application of Science and Innovation in Day-To-Day Practice
Speaker: Marcel Wouda (NED)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

Over the past seven years, the National Training Centre and the Sports Innovation Lab (Innosport) in Eindhoven (Netherlands), have worked side-by-side and developed a method to help athletes improve their skills and technique. 

We found that by bringing the specialist to the pool, we can accelerate improvement. I will explain how we do this, how we build this into our yearly periodisation and provide examples from our daily workouts.
11:00-11:30 – Break
11:30-12:45 – The Science of Skills in Swimming
Speaker: Roald Van der Vliet (NED)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

The science of skills is a very practical lecture about the use of technology, statistics and science in a high performance surrounding.

Using technology in order to be able to give direct feedback to coaches, to make a connection between the experienced performance by an athlete in relation to the real outcome of a start or a turn, is necessary to enhance performance.

The lack of 'hard' data and exact times often lead to wrong conclusions and guesses by coaches in the training process. Software, hardware, mathematics and research has to be focused on individual oriented performance monitoring. 

In this lecture I would like to share our findings and lessons learned in the past years.
13:00-14:00 – Lunch
14:15-15:30 – Science and Innovation of Distance and IM Coaching
Speaker: Fred Vergnoux (ESP)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium
15:30-16:00 – Break
16:00-17:15 – Skill Acquisition and Injury Prevention
Speaker: Rod Havriluk (USA)

Location: Coaches Golden Clinic Auditorium

The technique elements that optimise performance are consistent with preventing injury. Unfortunately, most swimmers (over 95%) have harmful technique elements that stress their shoulders and also limit their performance. 

Fortunately, there are 'deliberate practice' strategies that can help swimmers master the skills that optimise performance and minimise shoulder stress. Research shows that deliberate practice (DP) strategies also accelerate the skill-learning process. 

DP strategies for swimming include: precise wording of specific cues; skill-isolation drills; short-distance swims at a slow rate; continual focus on select cues; reinforcement of positive technique elements; feedback about limiting factors; classroom and poolside instruction and analysis; solo practice with and without a coach; task designed to maintain focus in the cognitive and associative learning stages; and replication of superior performance. 

This presentation will include examples of DP strategies with an emphasis on technique adjustments to prevent shoulder injuries.
17:15-17:30 – Closing Notes
