Swimming Coach


I teach swimming on a Sunday night at Bellahouston, see here for how to book lessons there, or how to get in touch with me.


In the meantime, here are some posts I’ve done about Swimming Teaching:

Teaching different levels of beginners how to swim
Teaching Swimming is fun!

Go here for more information on the ASA Quailfications you can get.

If you are going to take the ASA courses, or you’d like to know a bit more about how to teach or learn to swim, I’d highly recommend the following books:

1. Swimming Teaching and Coaching Level Two by Lynn Hogarth
(More detailed for Level 2 course)
2. Introduction to Swimming Teaching  by J Lawton
(Introduction for Level 1 course)

You could contact your local council like I did (Glasgow Swimming Development details are here) and see if they offer any training or have any other information which might help you get into swimming teaching.

Here’s the link to the Swimming Lessons section of the Glasgow City Council website.
