-What is a constraints-led approach (CLA) to learning and how is it different from a traditional approach? 

-Task, individual and environmental constraints and how to use them

-How the roles and responsibilities of coaches and swimmers change when going from a traditional to a constraints-led approach

-Using a CLA in swim coaching to improve skills and fitness simultaneously

-How the implementation of CLA changes based on athletes' ages, ability levels, swimmers vs. triathletes, etc. 

-Challenges of using the CLA in swim coaching

-How an individual (e.g. podcast listener) can implement the CLA themselves to improve their swimming skills
