March Marlins - Performance Coach

Posted on July 16, 2022

March Marlins Swimming Club have been established for over 54 years and compete at organised events across throughout East Anglia on a regular basis. As a Swim21 accredited club, who are also fully registered with Swim England, we proudly exhibit our club values wherever we go.

With nearly 150 swimmers, ranging from juniors new to competitive swimming all the way up to masters, we are a community-based club dedicated to developing the next group of top-class swimmers in our area.

Your role as Performance Swimming Coach is to lead and develop the training structures for our most competitive swimmers, working in conjunction with the wider coaching and teaching group. You will be expected to take the lead on writing and delivering the training schedules for up to 9 hours of poolside training each week, heavily weighted towards improving the competitive abilities of our most talented swimmers. You will be supported by other coaches and teachers within the club.

We are looking for someone who is a strong leader, who can champion our top swimmers, motivating and inspiring them to reach their full potential. Our most competitive swimmers train hard and want to succeed, so gaining their 'buy in' is essential to keeping them motivated and challenged during your sessions.

Coaching and inspiring them to get the results they and March Marlins want will be a hugely important part of the clubs future success.

Based at the George Campbell Leisure Centre, March, but also swimming at the Manor Leisure Centre, Whittlesey, this role is ideal for a Level 2 qualified swim coach (minimum), looking to take a lead on the direction on both the pool side activity, as well as the planning and administration associated with the role. The ability to attend meets where necessary will be required.

This role is advertised on a self-employed, part-time basis. Salary on application. This is negotiable for the right candidate.

If you are interested, please contact us for an informal chat on 07806 230651 or email your CV to marlinssecretary1@gmail.com Interviews will include both a face-to-face meeting, and then a poolside trial undertaken with our performance group.
