Information – training programme
April 27, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We are pleased to announce a parents meeting will take place on Saturday 27th April 2019 in The Hub at Salt Ayre (room at the far end of the corridor in the Spa).
The talk will be given by Rick, a Level 3 Swim England Coach who has coached Carnforth Otters swimmers for over 10 years, working closely with Head Coach, Mark Smith.
For the first time, we will be incorporating a talk on the club’s training programme and long term development. This section of the talk aims to clarify what coaches are trying to achieve across the training program from 5 years old to 18+. The rationale behind the program at each stage of the athlete pathway will be explained. The key pitfalls and factors for success will be identified and the importance of taking a long-term approach to swimmers development will be explained whether the objective is competitive success or life-long participation in sport.
Following the talk, there will be an open question and answer discussion including the process for competitive entries and guidance on supporting swimmers.
The final section of the meeting will include an opportunity for one-to-one meetings with the coaches to discuss progress and progression.
Tea and Coffee will be provided and we hope to see many of you there.
