The teachers and coaches, are assisted by volunteer helpers who, swimmers themselves, seek to become teachers and coaches and continue to help the Club. Each helper is assigned to a teacher/coach in order to learn the techniques of teaching and coaching of swimming. Helpers may, under the supevision of the teacher/coach, occasionally take a swimming lesson to gain experience.
The teachers and coaches use work programmes that are designed to seamlessly take a non swimmer through to an active competitive swimmer and can advise on advanced training venues. All the work prorammes have set targets for the swimmer to aim for and are used as a guide for the promotion of a swimmer to the next group.
All members are reviewed regulary and are promoted to the next group if their review is favouable.
