National Performance Services Manager John Watson will deliver two seminars entitled ‘Strength & Conditioning – Content & Delivery for the Swimming Coach’ on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September 2018 at Sport HQ and the Sport Ireland Institute on the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown. Each seminar will incorporate classroom and practical sessions


John is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading swimming specific strength & conditioning practitioners and there has been much call amongst the Irish swimming coaching community for upskilling and education in this area. The days will be broken into a combination of theoretical and practical sessions which will aim to provide underpinning knowledge, upskill coaches on technical aspects of S&C coaching and also provide a number of resources which can be utilised within their clubs.

Each seminar will run from 1200-1700 with the focus on Saturday 8th being predominantly for coaches working with club & regional swimmers (age group into youth coaching) and the focus on Sunday 9th being for coaches working with national and international swimmers (youth into senior coaching). A full timetable for the two days is available here

Each seminar will earn each Coach 2 CPD Points for a single day or 3 CPD points for both days. The cost for each seminaris €80.00 per day and places can be accessed on a first-come-first served basis via this link.
