Online Club Coach Workshop Project
With the pandemic causing the cancellation of our Club Coach Workshop back in March, our Kim Tyler from the National Coaching Committee has taken up the call to re-purpose the current face-to-face delivery mode to an online delivery. Using the videography skills of our Communications & Events Coordinator, Tarquin Bateman, Kim and a team of volunteers has set about creating Masters Swimming Australia Club Coach Course Workshop into an online course. This massive project is now in testing and will be submitted to the National Coaching Committee in September for approval.
