Swim England Assistant Coach

You can now start your Swimming, Diving, and Water Polo Assistant Coach courses online. We have split the theory and practical elements of all our Swim England coaching certificates into two courses.

Search courses

While pools were closed, we adapted our Swim England Assistant Coach certificates and split the theory and practical elements into two courses:

  1. Theory – This will be delivered online through interactive e-learning. You can start your e-learning as soon as you are booked on and work through the content at your own pace.
  2. Practical – This will start with a series of zoom webinars to cover some practical topics and your venue orientation. You will then go on to do four or more, half-day practical sessions at the pool and a final webinar with your tutor.

You can start your Swimming, Diving, and Water Polo Assistant Coach course online with our interactive e-learning.

The specialist online learning is split into bite-sized pieces, so you don’t have to do it all in one go. This will mean you can work through the course online at home, at your own pace.

We will then arrange your practical training days once the leisure centres and clubs have reopened. Your practical poolside learning will include supporting club training sessions to gain hands-on practical experience.

Course fees

As these certificates are split into theory and practical sessions, we are splitting the course fee into two separate payments.

When you start the course and begin your online learning, you will only have to pay £100.

Once you have finished all the theory, you can book your practical sessions and make your final payment.

Who is the course designed for?

Anyone who wants to take the first step to become a coach or interested in supporting a coach in a club environment.
