Helping children become confident swimmers and giving them a healthy hobby they can enjoy for life is truly rewarding.
Are you up for the challenge?
Whether you're a qualified coach or would like to qualify, we welcome you to coach with us at Appleby Swim Club.
I enjoy teaching new techniques and sharing my experiences with the students to help them progress to their full potential. Elsa, coach
Learn to coach
If you'd like to become a swim coach, we can help you gain a nationally recognised coaching qualification.
We offer fully funded places on the Amateur Swimming Association's Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications in Teaching Aquatics.
We ask that you coach with us for two academic years in return. Who knows where it might lead you!
Not a great swimmer? No problem. You don't have to be a strong swimmer to coach.
A grant of £670 from Cumbria Community Foundation, has paid the course fees for both Elfie and Elliot; who have swam with the club since primary school to complete their ASA Level 1 Teaching Aquatics course. Welcome them poolside and well done!!
