The First Coach Development Day at Swimcube

Sunday saw six STA open water coaches attending the first coaching development day held in partnership with SYS & Stuart Hacker at the Swimcube.



The day consisted of pool time for each coach with video analysis, stroke corrections and drill training. The in water feedback and general discussions were a great way to not only improve their personal swimming technique but also helping to improve their delivery when coaching their own swimmers.

We’ve made a few tweaks after our own feedback and look forward to the next course which will be announced soon.  A big thank you to Paul Gamble, Izzy Fisher, Kay Southwell, Heather Schelhase, Raf Oya and Andy Butler for making the day so much fun and to Nicky Evans for her fantastic help and support .
