Swimmers and Swimming Coaches! Join our Performance Team in a series of FREE Online CPD this autumn, designed to give you the opportunity to learn directly from the best minds in the business.

Each session is led by a different department, starting at the top with National Senior Team Head Coach Ben Higson, and National Performance Director Jon Rudd, then moving across to strength training with Paul Talty and Lorna Barry, team management with Mark Lappin, and finally IM turn skills with Sarah Fellner.

All these sessions are scheduled to take place in the evening, free of charge, and will earn you 1 CPD point.
