Swim England, Scottish Swimming and Swim Wales, supported by British Swimming, are planning to resume hosting their bi-annual coaching conference at the Leonardo Hotel (East Midland Airport) on 24-25 November.

Building around a theme of ‘Developing Excellence in Coaching’, the two-day event will showcase a range of presentations from some of the leading performance sport speakers and practitioners in the country, along with some of our most successful and highly respected coaches.

Who is it for?

All head and assistant coaches of clubs who are operating in the performance development world, or coaching athletes to British Championships and British Summer Meet level.

Who’s speaking at it?

The final speaker schedule is still being finalised but we have various leading speakers and topics lined up.  UK Coaching’s Tom Hartley will discuss ‘Play Their Way’.  British Swimming staff will consider what excellent coaching should look like and provide updates on the OADF and OCDF projects.  Scottish Swimming’s Paul Wilson will present on how clubs can easily and successfully fully integrate para-swimmers into their mainstream training routines.  Coaches involved in the careers of elite swimmers Tom Dean, Katie Shanahan and Maisie Summers-Newton will report on how they successfully navigated the athlete journey.  Biomechanics expert Olly Logan from British Swimming will share key learnings from some of the technical projects that have been taking place in recent years.  And much more.
