Caroline McDermott (PA) Chosen as ASCA Fellow for 2017 Class


Caroline has been chosen as an ASCA fellow for a pilot project.  Below is the description of the project.


ASCA Fellows 2017 project ----
With our world changing at a rapid rate, ASCA would like to explore how changing generational influences affect athletes and impact how they are coached. The 2017 Fellows class will construct a comprehensive definition/description illustrating today's "contemporary athlete", which will encapsulate what/who the modern (Age Group) athlete is.  The class will propose a model on how to reach/coach this demographic effectively in Swimming.

Scope of Work:
The 2017 class will conduct background research and consult with outside organizational experts to explore and answer many burning questions about our current athlete demographic, such as: Are swimmers today (Gen Z, iGen) different from previous generations of athletes (Millennials, Boomers), and in what ways? How does this demographic learn? How do they communicate? What are their priorities? Strengths/weaknesses?

(The class may also explore: Are the athletes the same, but the parents different? Are the athletes the same, but the coaches different?  How have Millennial parents/coaches affected the latest generation? How can the coach's role on their team evolve to be effective across all generations from athletes, to parents, to board members?)

The summarized research will be followed by contemporary recommendations in the form of a formal coaching model that provides tools and action items for use in working with today's athlete effectively.

From the ASCA Website:  
The Fellows is a mentorship program aimed at developing future (off deck) coach-leaders of our sport. The program is centered on the completion of a project done in the year between World Clinics, with the projects designed to advance the swimming body of knowledge.

Congratulations, Caroline
