Midlothian Swimming Club is looking to expand its experienced and highly successful coaching team. We are delighted to be able to provide a range of opportunities for those wishing to develop skills and gain practical experience in coaching competitive swimmers.


A swiMark accredited club, Midlothian currently has around 80 members ranging in age from 7 – 18 years. We train in modern facilities throughout Midlothian and in Edinburgh. The Club has an excellent reputation for developing talented, technically sound young swimmers and we have considerable success every year at District, Scottish and British Championships, most recently at the East District Age Group Championships where three of our swimmers emerged as Age Group Champions.

The Club is keen to expand, and we are therefore looking for enthusiastic and talented individuals with a background or keen interest in competitive swimming to join our friendly coaching team either on a regular or occasional basis.  Level 1 or Level 2 coaching qualifications would be the ideal, however the Club would be happy to invest in appropriate courses to allow committed individuals to gain relevant qualifications.

Candidates must have the ability to motivate our young people and to work positively with the other coaches. All coaches are subject to PVG clearance and appropriate safeguarding training. Interested individuals should contact by Friday 27th March 2020.
