Coaches from across the Doncaster network of clubs attended a coach education workshop at Dearne Valley Leisure Centre which was delivered by Fred Furniss, Swim England’s Talent Officer. The workshop covered the areas of Developing Breast Stroke, Starts and Turns.
Fourteen coaches from seven clubs and Doncaster and Culture Leisure Trust operator programmes participated. Overall the participants rated the content of the information provided very highly and said that they would all be able to go away and use the information provided within their club sessions.
Coaches also left considering how they could potentially develop the facilities available to support developing starts at their local facility.
One coach commented “The session covered a variety of areas which I can look to implement within my squad sessions working with age group swimming. It was motivating and very interesting to learn more about the up to date aspects of technique and how these can be developed with age group swimmers. I look forward to using the information provided and attending future coach development sessions.”
