Swimming Coaches Regional Conference

A combined Northumberland and Durham and Yorkshire Coaches conference will be held on Sunday 18th March 2018. The conference is primarily aimed at Level 1 and Level 2 Swimming coaches and forms part of the England Programmes County Development Programme. Level 3 coaches and above are also welcome to attend if they wish.

This is an excellent opportunity for coaches to access technical and non- technical information specifically relating to age – group swimming. Attendance will allow coaches to develop a greater awareness of the critical role that they need to play in the development of our aspiring young swimmers. Delegates will have the opportunity to check and challenge their understanding with key speakers and their peers throughout the day.
