We've had a few enquiries recently about how our older swimmers can get more involved in volunteering for the club, and maybe become teachers and coaches.
We are currently planning an exciting programme for young volunteers, to give them a wide ranging introduction to all that goes on in a swim club. This will be for swimmers aged 13+ - watch this space.
In the meantime, for those moving into school Year 11 or above in September 2019, I'm pleased to pass on details of the Volunteer Scheme to be run by EveryoneActive at Aqua Vale and Swan over the coming year, which many of our older swimmers have followed in order to gain experience and become qualified swim teachers.
Full details are shown via the links below. This year, only two spaces are available, so please don't hang around, and feel free to ask for the names of those in our club who have already done the scheme as I'm sure they'd be happy to answer your questions.
An alternative way to obtain teaching qualifications is to book courses diretly through the Instutute of Swimming:-
For those interested in volunteering poolside, please talk to Ally Brewer, and of course to Noel, Bill, Sophie or Dani.
