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!!

Qualified coaches

If you're already a qualified coach with some time to spare, we'd very much value your help at Appleby Swim Club.
