On 28th of December 2010 a new Organisation, International Society of Swimming Coaching (ISOSC) was founded. Until now ISOSC has published the Journal of the International Society of Swimming Coaching, published over fifty articles and held the International Swimming Coaching E-conference on Swimming and Science. ISOSC is a Society bringing together over 250 members from 48 countries all over the world. Recently we have published the International Journal of Swimming Kinetics, which publishes the latest experimental research. We desire to organise not only serial conferences, but also to establish regular information and concept exchange in the people, who devote their lives to scientific research in swimming performance and swimming coaching. We seek swimming coaches and scholars of more recent exercise science disciplines and from various parts of the world to join our activity. The primary aim of the ISOSC is to bridge the gap between exercise science and the art of coaching. The secondary goals are;
- support and disseminate research-based knowledge and its practical application, to improve swimming performance and fitness.
- unify members and facilitate a professional exchange of ideas in exercise science and swimming coaching as it relates to the improvement of swimming performance and fitness.
Our membership is comprised of swimming coaches, exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, researchers, educators, physical therapists, professors, sports doctors and students training to enter the field. The ISOSC provides its members with a wide variety of resources and opportunities designed to enhance their education and careers, including: exceptional professional journals; cutting-edge conferences; scholarship and grant opportunities; educational articles. In addition, the ISOSC Certification offers accredited certification programs, the Certified Swimming Specialist, (CSS).
The ISOSC Team
The ISOSC Team and Working Group members are volunteer writers, researchers, editors, webmasters, coaches, exercise scientists who are working together to take ISOSC to new heights in its relatively short life. ISOSC has some wonderfully talented people taking latest research and raising the industry standards even higher. ISOSC is a major leap forward and represents the most exciting effort of coaches and exercise scientists working in collaboration.
