Coaches and swim teachers
Please see below an update on the content for the upcoming para-swimming course run by Carl Cooper on Sun 22nd Jan at 2pm at Kings Chambers. This session is open to swim teachers and coaches and should last approx 2 hours.
In order to ensure that we have an appropriately sized room please could you email Jo Smith to confirm your attendance at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a reminder, the course will cover:
- The Swimmer ID Tool Kit
- Useful documents including the Para-Swimming Tracker form
- What is Para-Swimming and what is Disability Swimming?
- Ways to assess swimmers ability
The above will give the club enough information to deliver swimmer assessments
- We will then look at different impairment groups and look at the key areas of focus for early practices through to Elite performers. This has proved really useful and means that it’s relevant to teachers and coaches who can look at a swimmer and see the impact work has at each stage of that swimmers development. I have some case studies that I use to focus on that. Set / lesson adaptations are touched on as well throughout this section.
