While Government guidance meant pools were closed for a time, opportunities to acquire qualifications have not stopped. The Institute of Swimming (IoS) has specifically adapted this course to make sure everyone has the opportunity to start their training.

As an aspiring coach, this course will equip you with the knowledge and tools to actively support a Synchronised Swimming Coach in the delivery of a planned training session.

Who is the course designed for?
Anyone who wants to take the first step to become a Synchronised Swimming Coach or interested in supporting a coach in a club environment.

Course content
This course will be delivered through a mixture of online Zoom sessions and practical poolside learning. The IoS will then arrange your practical training days as leisure centres and clubs reopen. Your practical poolside learning will include supporting at least three training sessions to gain hands on practical experience.

You will learn about:
  • The role of the assistant coach
  • The fundamentals of Synchronised Swimming
  • How to safely prepare, support and conclude coached Synchronised Swimming sessions
  • Basic and Synchronised Swimming specific coaching skills
  • Coach and performer development
  • Good practice in coaching ethics
  • Health and safety

Course fees
To allow as many people to start training during these exceptional times, the course fee has been split into two separate payments.

When you start the course and begin your online learning, you will only have to pay £100.

Once you have finished all the theory, you can book your practical session and make your final payment of £250. The final payment may be reduced to £100 if you are part of a Swim England Club and the IoS has a Club Offer course available.
