London Aquatic Conference
Swim England London held their first full Aquatic Conference on Saturday September 7th 2019 at the Novotel London West, Hammersmith.
The conference brought together all discplines of the swimming community in London for a full day of workshops relative to those involved in the running of our clubs, and the coaching and development of our aquatic athletes. With over 70 attendees, the day proved to be a successful, informative and collaborative start to the aquatics season in London.
For those who attended on the day, please feel free to share your thoughts and feedback with us. This short questionnaire should take no more than a few minutes to fill in and will help us continue to deliver workshops that meet the requirements of London’s aquatics community.
Swim England London look forward to seeing you at our aquatics conference in 2020 – further details will be available here in early 2020. A number of the days workshop presentations are availble for download below;
