Our courses are designed to build upon & compliment the information received within an NGB Certificated course, read, listen or watch then consider how to apply. Revisit as often as you want and when completed, this will sit in your personal Journal for sharing with current & potential clients and/or employers for them to see.
We have pitched each course at three different levels. If you are a newly certificated coach or someone helping poolside, the first level will open you up to wider possibilities. Our second tier courses are for more experienced coaches working perhaps in small Clubs or programmes as a Head Coach, or an Assistant in a larger programme, whereas Tier 3 courses are for those who have been around a while, or are leading up larger established programmes, or of course, those who aspire to such.
The BSCA produced this structured programme given the mass of information available in this media hungry age. Its aim is to help coaches have a structured approach to their development that was both practical and appropriate to their needs, and so that its completion would be recognised and available to those who may wish to peruse whether you have maintained your pursuit of knowledge by inspecting your personal Journal.
Now more than ever, it is important that swim coaches are recognised for their personal achievements and development of knowledge. Through your personal Journal this system provides the opportunity to do both with your work within the process being accessible and your achievement from elsewhere being given pride of place alongside. A one stop shop for you, your clients and your swimmers.

Our unique programme empowers Swimming Coaches to fill in the gaps in their knowledge at their own pace, relevant to your level of operation, your experience and to compliment current qualifications and certificates, adding from academic sources, practical application and assisting you in how to professionalise how you practice. Upon completeing any particular Unit, you can choose to have this recognised within your personal Journal which can display what training you have undertaken and when. What other achievements or activities you have undertaken and whatever information (within reason) you wish to have available to potential service users or any other interested party.

This course exposes coaches to sports performance concepts and the researchers who have shaped modern-day periodisation. Each module provides a structure and methodical insight into the planning process. Throughout each module, the learner will be introduced to several coaching methodologies and schematics, which can be introduced into real-life coaching scenarios. This course should encourage coaches to reflect upon their existing plans, programs and reconsider their effectiveness. The initial module sets the tone and context for all other modules surrounding the topics of periodisation and planning. The units within this course explore Methodologies and Schematics:: Systems, Tools and Technology:: Performer and Process:: Promoting Sports Performance through Strength.
The development and or journey of a swimmer is unique and individualised. Every swimmer will pass through several windows of change which are inevitable. In some cases, the results of passing through a window are immediately visible, whilst others are subtle, accumulate over time and reveal themselves over the long term. The course objectives are to promote a higher understanding of developmental change and then provide opportunities to analyse and identify the stages of growth within their clubs or schools' development pathways. The units within this course explore Biology:: Physics:: Sporting Pathway, Junior to Senior.
Self-reflective practices should be a regular part of the coaching process. Maintaining the delivery of high-quality service is tough to sustain. When the level of quality drops noticing changes in your behaviour and state of mind change may imply coach burnout. The coaching environment can significantly strain and impact personal relationships. This course aims to provoke coaches into considering and assessing their welfare. The units within this course explore Mental Wellbeing:: Well Being and Duty of Care:: Coach, Athlete and Parent Management; Performance.
Coaching can be seen as a craft and performing art. Successfully delivering a session depends upon capturing the attention of our audience. A prior understanding of the topic will influence how to utilise our stage and instruct them to perform the skill or task to the best of their ability. This section invites coaches to find clarity in their drive, motivations and coaching purpose. The units within this course explore Coaching Philosophy:: Coach Behaviour:: The Reflective Coach.
