Team Manager Regional Conference

A Team Manger Regional Conference will take The Bridge Hotel, Walshford, Wetherby, North Yorkshire, LS22 5HS running along side the Coaches Conference.

The Team Manager conference is part of the England Programmes County/Regional Development Programme and aimed at any level of Team Manager. This is an excellent opportunity for Team Managers to access technical and non- technical information specifically relating to age – group swimming. Attendance at the conference will allow Team Managers 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.
