Three new online CPDs are aimed at swimming teachers, coaches and any swimmer who is keen to improve their technique and learn more about the fundamentals of swimming. Each one is available exclusively via STA Online.
STA LEVEL 2
OPEN WATER COACHING
For those who love open water and want to promote and share their passion by coaching swimmers in an open water environment, STA’s Open Water Swimming Coaching qualification will prepare learners for all aspects of open water swimming coaching, from planning, coaching and evaluating open water swimming sessions.
THE WORLD TO SWIM
Keri-anne and David have combined their Olympic experience, explored with leading coaches and scientists, to create Straight‑Line Swimming which focuses on empowering swimmers to learn and own their own swimming development simply and effectively. The ethos is to make the method of swimming from A to B easier, more efficient and—most importantly—more fun.
WHAT HAVE OUR QUALIFIED STRAIGHT-LINE COACHES SAID...
I believe in myself I have found a renewed confidence in my coaching skills and have been able to provide an even better experience for my clients. I simply loved this course!!!
My clients that have come to me have had a marked improvement on their overall technique and confidence in the water
It’s given me the confidence to coach adults in open water. Previously I’d only coached in the pool.
I really did think I was just doing the course to get the certificate. It was such a wonderful surprise to discover that coaching is very different from teaching! I got so much from the course - it showed me how to work with swimmers to help them do their best.
The balance of technical Straight-line Swimming content coupled with Open Water skills was perfect and has enabled me to coach a wide variety of students since - from real beginners to advanced Triathletes.
I have to say this was the best course I have ever been on and learned so much more than I could ever have imagined, I attended the course with a great group of women. Thank you so much to Keri-anne and David for a fantastic weekend.
