12 New STA Open Water Coaches



SwimYourSwim are extremely proud to introduce the 12 new open water coaches that passed their STA Open Water Coaching course this weekend at DCLT’S fantastic Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre in Doncaster.


The three day course saw all of the candidates in the class room & open water, planning and delivering sessions relating to safety, stroke adaptation and the law in readiness to pass on their newly acquired knowledge to new and experienced open water swimmers. The wealth of experience on the course was pretty impressive and we’re sure they will all go on to help and encourage even more people into the open water safely and with a huge smile.




Our next course in July is fully booked but if you would like to join us in September please visit the STA website for further details and to book your place.


Special thanks to Kayle Burgham and Dave Candler & all of the team at the STA for their help and assistance, and the huge team of volunteers at SYS without whom I would never have been able to dedicate the time to organise these courses and to Keri-anne for sharing the experience of your first course delivery. Also to Robert Hamilton for adding me onto whats been a rollercoaster few months – thank you all.



We think Rory’s pic says it perfectly…
