Coaching Consultation Form

Following feedback from our members, this form has been created to help ensure you or the person you care for receives the best possible aquatics experience. It has been written primarily with consideration for autistic club members, however we recognise it may be useful for many other individuals.

The Coaching Consultation Form has been written following a number of enquiries from parents, carers, and coaches as to the best way to support swimmers with autism within the club environment. Whilst created with autism in mind, it has been designed to help shape conversations with new and existing members where any additional support may be required. We would recommend that the form is completed with the parent/carer, the member (if age appropriate), the Club Welfare Officer and a Club Coach. Identifying solutions to overcome barriers is best done collaboratively! This can be done prior to the member starting to train or following an ‘embedding’ period to identify if there are any areas that could be improved. An agreed review period is also recommended to ensure that both the club and the member are comfortable with any adjustments that are made.

Please ensure any personal information is stored securely and consent is gained before sharing any personal information with other club members.
