Level 2 Swim Coach required for Masters swimmers at Croydon Amphibians

Posted on May 20, 2019


Croydon Amphibians is a long standing swimming club with roots going back to the 1800’s. There are 4 main sections, Swim School, Squads, Masters and Water Polo. There are over 500 swimmers in the club in total, about 40 being involved with Masters swimming. Masters swimmers must be at least 16 years old.

The club is one of the best competitive clubs in South London. The Masters swimmers take part in many swimming competitions, including at National and International level, as well as open water races and triathlons.

The Masters have nearly six hours of pool time Monday to Thursday evenings. We have a flexible organisational structure, with a large degree of independence from the main committee. There are links between all coaches in the club, depending on the individual, often squad coaches swim with the Masters.

We are looking for a coach for the Masters swimmers.  Ideally candidates would have a Level 2 coach certificate, though we would look at other qualifications and any relevant experience. The candidate should possess the ability to motivate swimmers, encourage swimmers new to the club, and be able to adapt to the differing needs and abilities of older swimmers. The candidate should be able to write interesting, relevant and challenging training schedules for the swimmers for each session

The position is that of an employee who would be paid through the club payroll system, so HMRC rules apply. The position would suit a locally based candidate and relocation assistance cannot be provided. Hourly rate will be commensurate with qualifications and experience

Applications and CVs to be sent by email to the treasurer stonem@virginmedia.com
