#GetInvolved and Make a Difference with Scottish Swimming’s Regional Training Week

"Quality teaching and coaching underpins everything we do at Scottish Swimming " Amanda Rigby-Greenhaugh, Scottish Swimming Education Manager

Scottish Swimming in partnership with Aberdeen sports Village is to run their first Regional Training Week with the main focus of up-skilling the regional coaching and teaching network and developing knowledge and providing opportunities for both the paid and volunteer workforce.

The event runs from Saturday 19th to Sunday 27th April and comprises of UKCC courses, CPDs and workshops and will be mainly held at the Aquatics Centre at Aberdeen Sports Village, a world class facility which opens to the public next month and which recently played host to the Commonwealth Water Polo Championships.

Speaking ahead of the event, Amanda Rigby-Greenhaugh, Education Manager, Scottish Swimming said of the event:

“Quality teaching and coaching underpins everything we do at Scottish Swimming so events like this are crucial and play a huge part in not only helping build stronger, sustainable clubs but gives the clubs and supporting partners a workforce ready to take on the Legacy that a home Commonwealth Games will bring.

“There’s an exciting and relevant programme of courses and workshops meaning that there really is something for everyone, and I would encourage people working in clubs, Local Authorities and Trusts, who help develop aquatics in the region to get involved.”

The Regional Training Week in Aberdeen is the first in a series to be run across the country, and details of other Regional Training Weeks to follow in due course.
