Swimming Australia has worked very hard to build a strong, robust and quality assured National Coaching Framework in order to support the swimming community in Australia.
Part of the evolution of the National Coaching Framework has been a commitment to “coaching excellence” at all levels of the sport. In order to maintain and further grow the quality of Swimming Australia Coaches and swimming coaching practice in Australia no exemptions are granted for any Swimming Australia Coach Programs. All coaches must complete our Coach Program requirements to gain the relevant Swimming Australia coach accreditation.
We acknowledge many candidate coaches may have some relevant swimming knowledge and potentially some swimming coaching competence. This knowledge and competence can be verified through the completion of our Swimming Australia Coach Programs, as the knowledge obtained in the program and the face to face contact with our Coach Development experts and other coach candidates is invaluable for personal coach development and connection with the Swimming Australia coaching community.
