Coaches attend Northumberland and Durham Workshop

3rd July 2017
On Saturday 1st July, over 40 coaches from across Northumberland and Durham attended a half day coaches workshop at the Sunderland Aquatics Centre.

During the morning, Swim Wales National Coach Development and Performance Pathway Manager Graeme Antwhistle delivered an excellent pool session on Progressive Breaststroke Drills which he followed with a presentation on Breaststroke Development. Sedgefield’s Head Coach John Moore then rounded off the morning with a talk about his experiences within coaching and his coaching model.

The workshop was well attended and it was great to see so many coaches from a variety of clubs across the county joining together to learn from two very experienced and knowledgeable coaches.

Many thanks to Graeme and John for their presentations and to the swimmers from the Northumberland and Durham Performance training programme who took part in the pool session.
