Online Coaching Webinars

We are bringing our Athlete Online Coaching Programme Webinars into your clubs!

In a time when active coaching and swimming in the pool is currently not taking place, we want to give all our athletes an opportunity to gain additional coaching support.

Clubs can choose from eight topics, including all the strokes, Individual Medley, Nutrition, Lifestyle, and Lifeskills, Competition Management, and Relays. An experienced Swim Ireland Coach will present for an hour on their chosen topic, which includes time for a Q&A to get some added tips.

Each webinar costs €20, which subsidises the cost of coaching fee and clubs must be available to host and moderate.
