National Para-Swimming Coach Development Programme

Swim England’s National Para-Swimming Coach Development Programme provide coaches with an opportunity to learn and further develop their coaching skills to enhance their knowledge and experience of working with para-swimmers.

The National programmes will provide support to coaches working with para-swimmers and are centred on the pillars of athlete development and coaching behaviours.

Leading experts in para-swimming will deliver and support the programmes.

Levels of the National Para-Swimming Coach Development Programme

There are two levels of the development programme, these are:

  • National Coach Development Programme Level 1
    Centred on the pillars of athlete development, Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychological and Lifestyle. The programme supports coaches to create development plans for a para-swimmer under each pillar providing holistic development of the para-swimmer in their journey through the Athlete Development Support Pathway (ADSP).
  • National Coach Development Programme Level 2
    Building on Level 1 knowledge. The pillars of athlete development continue to be explored and reinforced in the process of holistically developing a para-swimmer. More emphasis on ‘knowing your para-swimmer’, coaching behaviours and reflective practices are a prominent feature of Level 2.
