Our club teachers and coaches are all volunteers.  Each teacher and coach is DBS checked and has completed Safeguarding training within the last 2 years, both of which are provided by the Club.


Each session will be led by a level 2 qualified coach/teacher in either swimming or water polo. They will be supported further by level 1/2 coaches or teachers and poolside assistants.


Some volunteers may have just started as a poolside assistant and the club is happy to support them in their level one or 2 qualification.


  • Level 1 (Assistant) coach is a coach who is supporting the coaching programme in a competitive environment
  • Level 2 coach is a coach who is coaching programme in a competitive environment
