Two exciting and comprehensive membership packages available to coaches across all aquatic disciplines have been launched by Swim England.
The Coach and Coach Plus Memberships are backed by the Institute of Swimming and will give almost 6,000 registered coaches the essential support and protection they need while helping them develop with additional training opportunities.
It is the first coach-specific membership offer to be developed by the national governing body and includes £20m public liability insurance, personal accident and loss of revenue cover plus a range of exclusive discounts and access to AquaHub – the new online learning and development portal.
Rebecca Cox, Managing Director of the Institute of Swimming said
“Coaches are dedicated to developing and inspiring participants at all levels and we want to ensure they receive professional recognition for their achievements.
To provide this, we are offering complimentary Institute of Swimming Membership to all Swim England Coach and Coach Plus Members so they can benefit from our professional membership status and designatory letters after their name.”
There is a special introductory offer for the Coach Plus package if purchased by 4 January 2023 – priced at £89 for direct debit and £99 for credit card with the prices rising to £119 and £129 respectively.
Those signing up for the Coach Plus offer will also receive Swim England branded gifts, increased development opportunities to a wider range of resources plus three free Connecting with Coaches sessions.
Gaby Hay, Swim England’s head of membership development, said:
“We’re delighted to be offering these exciting and comprehensive packages which have been tailored for all of our coaches.
“Our insight has shown us that coaches want to buy into the prestige of being associated with the national governing body – and the new Coach Membership gives swimming, diving, water polo and artistic swimming coaches the opportunity to do that.
“As a Swim England coach member, you’ll be able to take advantage of a range of exclusive benefits that will not only give you peace of mind and support but also help you to learn and develop.
There is extensive insurance coverage for both packages and access to our wide range of training resources.”
Coaches that are currently Institute of Swimming members will be communicated with informing them of how they can supplement their membership with the Swim England Coach package.
