About Coach 2024

Coaches on the Coach 2024 programme will undergo an intensive learning journey to improve their skills, knowledge and experience.

The programme is targeted at coaches working at the upper levels of the England Talent Pathway, working with age and youth swimmers.

Each coach will be exposed to a series of six core workshops which are fully aligned to the British Swimming’s Team Coaching Principles.

Workshops will comprise of both:

  • Technical content
  • Skill-based learning opportunities

This cohort will form a bespoke ‘community’ to share and integrate examples of best coaching practice.

Successful candidates will also be assigned a mentor to help support them both inside and outside the sporting environment.

England Programmes will also look to align phase 2 and 3 opportunities throughout the 14-month period to these coaches.
