If you are interested in the coaching programme in a competitive swimming environment, this certificate is suitable for you.
Achievement of all the units in this certificate will qualify you to operate as a senior coach. The full programme will provide you with the generic core coaching skills and knowledge common to all disciplines together with a specific focus on competitive swimming coaching technical knowledge and practical skills that will allow you to plan, deliver and evaluate a macro cycle of work. You will be able to manage and lead appropriate resources (physical and human) to support all areas of the club programme.
The Level 3 qualification is not delivered as a course but will consist of 11 units. Units 1 - 10 are delivered by separate stand-alone workshops and unit 11 is a Vocational Assessment. This is Unit 8 – Technique and Skill Adaptations.
This unit is sports specific and explores how the Level 3 Senior Swimming Coach can maximise swimmer efficiency by adapting technique.
