Teaching and Coaching at Sutton Swimming Club
We have had a number of volunteers offer to help out poolside with teaching/coaching. Over the next few weeks you can all expect to see some new faces on poolside.
As a club we really appreciate that these parents have offered their help and the established teachers/coaches will do all they can to help them understand what is involved so that they become increasingly confident, want to take it further and undergo formal training for the role.
This is a really positive step forward so thanks to Jason Dove, Jason Pascoe, Sue Dove, Susanna Dermody, Vicki Chesterton and Danielle Way
