Job Reference

Dane Valley Swimming Club, Congleton are looking to appoint a swimming coach, qualified to either level 1 or level 2, to work at both Congleton Leisure Centre and Sandbach Boys School pools. In March 2014, the club was accredited a SWIM21 recognised club and fit to deliver teaching and skill development to young swimmers.

The coach will work with the junior group, helping in the development of young swimmers taking their first steps into competitive swimming and predominantly working on skills and stroke improvement. The club's targets are to increase our representation in junior competitions and to have swimmers represented at North Midlands and Cheshire County Age Group Championships.

Candidates should have a strong background in teaching and coaching with either a level 1 or level 2 qualification and an interest in working towards the higher level. You must possess the knowledge and experience to provide swimmers with a training session suitable for their level and encourage and steer young swimmers and parents towards competition at the right level with a main focus of long-term athlete development.

A knowledge of competition locally and the structure of swimming from teaching to coaching would be favourable but not essential. A willingness to get involved and promote the club is essential, attending committee/coaches meetings where appropriate. There will be opportunities to develop via CPD courses. The successful candidate will work closely with the head coach in developing the club and be an active member of a small team of volunteers and poolside helpers.

Hours of Work:

11 hours a week, Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sun. Working hours to be agreed but would include some Saturday evenings for galas and open meets on Saturdays and Sundays.

Start date will be as soon as possible after appointment (dependant upon completion of necessary CRB checks).
