Start your coaching journey

Swimming in Australia has a proud history of excellence from community participation to elite performance. Excellence in any sport requires excellence in coaching.

Quality coaches have a huge impact on our swimming communities, they spend time with swimmers, young and old, and have a positive influence on the life and values of those they come into contact with.

The role of the coach is fundamental to the success and enjoyment of all swimmers at every level.

Coaching is a rich and rewarding experience helping others develop and achieve their personal swimming goals.

There are a variety of reasons people get involved in coaching, from parents wanting to help out with their child’s swimming club, or an experienced athlete looking to give something back to the sport they enjoy.

Your coaching journey starts with the Swimming Australia Development Coach Program.
