The National Coach Development Programme provides coaches with an opportunity to learn and further develop their coaching skills to enhance their knowledge and experience of working with para-swimmers. These programmes will provide support to coaches working with para-swimmers and are centred on the pillars of athlete development and coaching behaviours. Leading experts in para-swimming will deliver and support the programmes.
National Coach Development Programme Level 1
This programme is centred on the pillars of athlete development; Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychological and Lifestyle.
This programme will support coaches to create development plans for a para swimmer under each pillar providing holistic development of the para-swimmer in their journey through the Athlete Development Support Pathway (ADSP).
National Coach Development Programme Level 2
The Level 2 programme builds on from the Level 1 in the previous season.
The pillars of athlete development continue to be explored and reinforced in the process of holistically developing a para swimmer.
There is more emphasis on ‘knowing your para-swimmer’, coaching behaviours and reflective practice within the Level 2.
