Coaches

Coach

Swimming coaches are the backbone of our sport and are key to ensuring that clubs continue to develop and excel. We have developed a range of resources and programs to support coaches to be the best coach they can be.

What is the difference between teaching and coaching?

A Swimming Teacher may acquire specialist skills in teaching Competitive Swimming, Babies and Toddlers, Adolescents and Adults, Learners with Disability and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse.

A Swimming Coach helps to develop the swimmers’ capability beyond basic aquatic skills. Coaches focus on improving stroke efficiency, technique, strength, conditioning and race skills in their athletes through drills and training.
