About this event
The BC Summer Swimming Association welcomes all coaches, parents, officials, and volunteers to join us for this year’s SPRING CONFERENCE.
As the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing, we will be hosting the conference once again online, however we will be using the Canadian based EventMobi as our host. We believe that it will provide all our conference participants with an excellent online experience and the opportunity to connect directly with participants from other regions.
This year’s Conference will FOCUS ON HEALTH.
Some of the confirmed education workshops include:
Mental Preparation for Competition
Healthy Sleep Habits
Carl Cooper’s Coaching Corner
Goal Setting for Coaches
And of course, some of our more fun sessions will include:
BCSSA Trivia / Kahoot
Virtual Wine & Cheese small groups
Active workouts and breaks
