Today's coaching discussion is with Andrew Sheaff, most recently affiliated with the University of Virginia's swim and dive programs.
Over the course of his time at UVA, the program has risen to prominence, securing their first NCAA championship win for the women in the 2020-2021 season and following up with another two in succession.
Andrew hosts a blog for coaches entiled Coaching Flow and his first book on a constraint based approach to swim coaching is available for pre-order starting June 13th.
In this episode, Andrew and Kevin discuss what constraints are, how they can affect the learning process, and ways you as a coach can use (or already may be using!) them to better coach your athletes.
