Become a Club Coach

Are you interested in becoming a Club Coach? Perhaps you already have some coaching experience and want to upgrade your qualifications to be an accredited Masters Club Coach.

Our coaches are a club’s greatest asset. They are often the reason swimmers join a Masters club.
Whatever your background, becoming a Club Coach can be a rewarding personal experience and a valuable contribution to the swimming community.

The accreditation program will give you the skills to coach and guide your swimmers towards their goals.

Once completed, your qualifications will be recognised by the Sports Australia National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS).

There are different pathways to become an accredited Masters Swimming Club Coach.

Your previous coaching qualifications and experience will determine which pathway you will be in, with each requiring you to undertake different steps in the process of accreditation. Detailed steps can be viewed by following the links below.
