UKCC Level 1 Coaches
As accomplished swimmers themselves, some of our older members (14 – 18 yrs.) assist on poolside under the supervision of qualified coaches. They are excellent role models for the younger swimmers and enable the coaches to provide each swimmer with more individual attention. In addition, it is an excellent way to develop the older swimmer’s coaching skills and encourages them to remain active within the Club as they move into adulthood.
