Enjoy swimming? Spent your life in and around the pool? Love the thrill and excitement of competitiveness? Ever thought about becoming a coach?

Teaching the skills of competitive strokes is a rewarding experience and is why many former swimmers choose to stay within the swimming environment. No matter if you have experience, are a former swimmer or have no previous experience, you can become a coach today.

Australian swimming coaches gain their accreditation through a multi-level competency based training system that recognises acquired knowledge, practical experience and coaching performance (in the case of ‘advanced’ qualifications).

Swimming Australia, as the National body responsible for swimming, belongs to the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) of the Australian Sports Commission. The NCAS sets general guidelines for the development of course structures and pathways for recognition of coaching qualifications.
