The Level II clinic is designed to prepare coaches to work with developing elite and junior ITU level athletes. The course focuses on specific ITU style race requirements for athletes and covers performance based nutrition, mental skills, key components of training plans and specific workouts in all three disciplines as well as recovery techniques, ITU and World Ranking points systems and much more. This 3 ½ day course requires coaches to demonstrate hands-on coaching skills, ATP presentation knowledge, and a high level of comprehension of high performance short course race preparation and execution.

Clinic Procedures

Each LII candidate must complete the Level II clinic requirements which include: attending an entire LII clinic, a swim instruction, final ATP presentation as well as the written exam.

There is a checklist that is used to score each candidate on the pool deck as well as on the final presentation. Every candidate must score 80% on each component to be eligible for LII certification along with passing the exam with a score of 80%.

If a candidate does not meet the above criteria, the following will occur:

  • The candidate has failed the course.
  • USAT will discuss the areas that the candidate needs to improve upon and the Coach Development Senior Manager will discuss those areas with the candidate.
  • The Coach Development Senior Manager will recommend webinars, books, CEU’s and other areas that will help improve the candidates skills.
  • The Coach Development Senior Manager will recommend that the candidate attend the elite coaching mentorship program prior to applying for a future LII clinic.
  • The candidate must wait at least 12 months to apply for a future LII clinic.
  • Acceptance into or passing of a future LII clinic is not guaranteed.
