Swim England Assistant Swimming Coach - Club Offer - Practical Sessions Only

While pools were closed, we adapted this certificate and split the theory and practical elements into two courses.

This course covers the practical sessions and assessment and is for those who have already completed their theoretical training including e-learning and theory assessments.

Due to current Covid-19 guidelines and to ensure everyone’s safety, we will be keeping the amount of time you spend at the pool to a minimum so these practical sessions will consist of:

  • Three Zoom webinars - During this session, the tutor will cover the last of your practical topics, a venue orientation and planning for your pool-based training session.
  • One or more practical assessment sessions at the pool – this will consist of a meet and greet, preparation, assisting a coach during training sessions, evaluation and feedback. You may only need to attend some of the pool-based dates listed below. This will be selected with your course tutor during the first zoom session.
  • Dates for these sessions are to be confirmed for May onwards at Maidstone Leisure Centre, you will be contacted once these dates have been confirmed

You can see the full itinerary below.

Course fees

The final payment to cover your practical sessions and assessment can be seen below.
