We are happy to welcome you to the 3rd World Aquatic Development Conference. The 2016 conference will present a star-studded program of innovative swimming experts, coaches, and elite athletes. All speakers are recognized for their creative lateral thinking, and their persistence in asking challenging questions about the future directions of competitive swimming. The Competitive track will be moderated by Craig Lord, writer at The Times and Swimvortex.com and the Learn To Swim will be moderated by Ulrika Faerch, writer and swimschool operator.
All coaches and athletes are affected by sport culture and ethics. The 2016 WADC will offer ideas about how to operate within the culture, and how to anticipate
changes in the culture in ways that will help coaches and swimmers of all ages.
An overarching theme of the conference will be the link between the first experiences of swimming, in learn-to-swim, and the future success, or limitations, of swimmers.
