Swim England Assistant Water Polo Coach - Club Offer - Practical Sessions Only

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

This course covers the practical sessions and assessment and is for those who have already completed the first and second part of their theoretical training including e-learning, Zoom webinars, and theory assessments.

Your practical sessions and assessment will include a pool coaching session and consist of a meet and greet, session preparation, assisting a coach during training sessions, evaluation and feedback.

You can see the full itinerary below.
