Program Commencement

The Swim Ulster Coach Development Programme is set to kick off this November, offering a limited number of spaces. This ensures that participants benefit from a more focused and personalized learning experience.

Simon Toole of Sport NI emphasized the importance of this initiative, stating, "At Sport NI, we believe that support for coaches should go beyond coaching qualifications. It should consider each coach as an individual, embracing their unique needs and interests while supporting them to develop coaching expertise. We are delighted that Swim Ulster is embracing this type of support for continuous coach learning through their Coach Development Programme."
