Introducing the class of September 18

SwimYourSwim are very proud to introduce Nine new open water coaches who have successfully completed the STA Award for Open Water Coaching this weekend. The three day course was held at the DCLT’s Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre in Doncaster and brought together swimmers from a wide range of backgrounds and open water experiences.

Your new STA Level 2 open water coaches – Jackie Powles, Anna Street, Jane Crosby,Chris Hill, Raf Oya, Chris Greenwood, Joanne Good, Ann Chivers and Claire Wrather.


The course saw the new coaches delivering sessions on all aspects of open water swimming, from Health and Safety to probably the best display of an Australian start from Raf Oya that any of us have ever seen. [Ed-if you see Raf at a swim near you please ask for a demonstration, it’ll make your day ]

Our next course is in October, if you would like to join us there are still a couple of places left. You can book online via
