Swim England launch exciting membership packages for coaches

Two exciting and comprehensive membership packages available to coaches across all disciplines have been launched by Swim England.

The Coach and Coach Plus Memberships will give almost 6,000 registered coaches the essential support and protection they need and has been designed to help them develop in their roles with additional training opportunities.

It is the first coach-specific membership offer to be developed by the national governing body and includes £20m public liability insurance cover, personal accident and loss of revenue or business interruption cover benefits plus a a range of exclusive discounts and access to a learning and development hub.

There is a special introductory offer for the Coach Plus package if purchased by 4 January 2023 – priced at £89 for direct debit and £99 for credit card with the prices rising to £119 and £129 respectively.

The Coach package is priced at £59 (direct debit) and £69 (credit card).

Those signing up for the Coach Plus offer will also receive Swim England branded gifts, increased development opportunities to a wider range of resources plus three free Connecting with Coaches sessions.

The package also includes an assistance programme, access to an exclusive rewards platform and recognition for their role with professional membership status and letters after your name (MIOS/ FIOS).

Coaches can register their interest in the packages now and receive notification of when they are available to purchase later this month.

Tailored for all of our coaches

Gaby Hay, Swim England’s head of membership development, said: “We’re delighted to be offering these exciting and comprehensive packages which have been tailored for all of our coaches.

“Our insight has shown us that coaches want to buy into the prestige of being associated with the national governing body – and the new Coach Membership gives swimming, diving, water polo and artistic swimming coaches the opportunity to do that.

“As a Swim England coach member, you’ll be able to take advantage of a range of exclusive benefits that will not only give you peace of mind and support but also help you to learn and develop.

“There is extensive insurance coverage for both packages and access to our wide range of training resources.”

The Institute of Swimming is supporting these two membership packages so all coaches can take advantage of their designatory letters.

Coaches that are currently Institute of Swimming members will be communicated with informing them of how they can support their membership with the Swim England Coach package.
