SS Connect

SS Connect is a series of digital workshops and content, designed to aid learning, communication and enjoyment to support our members’ needs. These opportunities, delivered as interactive video conferencing sessions, upskill our members on a range of specific topics relevant to their role and domain.

These courses and sessions involve pre-registering guests and additional security measures to ensure we do as much as possible to keep participants safe online. Not only will we be bringing you education based content, but we will continue to share as much engaging material as possible on our social media channels - so look out for #SSConnect online.


Club Poolside Helper Educator Workshop

Scottish Swimming offers help to clubs, by providing coaches with the skills to train volunteers within their club to become Club Poolside Helpers.

Once the club has a trained ‘Educator’, they will be able to run the Club Poolside Helper workshop. This will give the volunteers the knowledge, skills and understanding to assist on poolside in their chosen aquatic club and identify mentoring sessions to help them develop and progress to undertaking their Level 1 Coaching certificate in the future.

Further information on the Club Poolside Helpers workshop can be found to the right of this page. To register a workshop to take place at your club please complete the CPD/Workshop registration form and send onto education@scottishswimming.com (please note you must have a trained "Educator" within your club prior to registering).



Scottish Swimming are excited to announce that we will soon be offering a series of self-directed virtual CPD’s relevant for both teachers and coaches. Please keep your eyes peeled on this page and social media channels, as we will be launching very soon!
