Swim England release new coaching and teaching guidelines for clubs

In January 2018 Swim England released guidance on the expectations of clubs in relation to the level of coaching and teaching in all disciplines in the club environment.  It is important that clubs, administrators, coaches and teachers have the peace of mind that they are covered by appropriate insurance.

The guidance offers advice on the standard that is required by our insurers in relation to a club’s liability insurance.

George Wood Club Development Director said: “Swim England is committed to ensuring a high quality and safe experience for people taking part in the aquatic sports.

“We regularly receive enquiries as to the necessary qualification levels of coaches and teachers working in clubs. The following statements clarify our expectations in this matter.”
