Swim England East Region takes a holistic approach to the development of swimming in the region, considering the needs of swimmers, coaches and parents. The Region has a Swimming Talent Officer, Kevin Pickard, who works to identify the needs of swimming in the East and put opportunities in place to ensure the continued development of swimming.
The region provides a range of opportunities for swimmers of different ages and at different stages of their development. More information about these opportunities can be found on our Regional Talent Programmes page.
Coaches play a key role in the development of swimmers and the East Region have several approaches to ensure coaches are supported and have development opportunities. This includes a regional coaches forum, coaching conferences and the opportunity to get involved in regional development camps. Full details of the opportunities available can be found by visiting our Coach Development page.
Swimmers need the support of their parents/carers in order to be successful, please visit our Parent Information page for ideas on key areas of support which will benefit swimmers the most.
