NxT Generation Coaches Conference – COACH APPLICATIONS WANTED

NxT Generation Coaches Conference
Friday 16th/Saturday 17th November 2018
Lancashire Cricket Ground, Manchester
Swimming coaches from across Great Britain will get the chance to share their knowledge at this year’s conference taking place in Manchester on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 November. Jointly organised by Swim England, Scottish Swimming, Swim Wales and supported by British Swimming, the conference is primarily aimed at coaches who are in the upper levels of England, Scotland and Wales Talent Pathways. The two-day event will be an opportunity for coaches to cooperatively learn and share their knowledge, practices and behaviours in developing swimmers.
As part of a Coach Development initiative, the West District Executive would like to support two coaches to attend the conference. The fund that will be available may not cover all costs, however we would expect your home club also to support you where possible. In return for this support, it would be agreed for the supported coaches to share the knowledge gained with the other members of the West District at a West District Meet before the end of June 2019 or other event as agreed with the Executive.
We are seeking applications from interested coaches who are looking to develop themselves, their club and also have the ability to share this learning experience in front of an audience.
To apply, please email secretary@scotswimwest.co.uk outlining why you would be a good candidate for selection for support. Applications will close on Thursday 27th September.
For more information please contact Derek McGown, Vice President on del_mcg@yahoo.co.uk at the earliest opportunity.

The District will be taking a team (Scotland West) down to these Championships and will also swim at the Lincoln Vulcan’s meet on the Saturday prior to the event.

District Modernisation Workshop follow up

Thank you to everyone who attended the District Delegates Meeting and had input in the Modernisation Workshop following the business of the meeting. Please find attached a copy of the slides and also the link to the survey. From your responses, these will be collated in conjunction with those from the Delegates Meeting on the 6th June to create a District Action Plan. This will then be communicated with the larger group and SASA. We are looking for honest opinions and feedback.

A reminder to everyone that we are asking for your name and club as we would like to be able to respond to opinions and ideas shared, as this follows on from the open forum held at the West District meeting. We want clubs also to be able to help us drive any ideas forwards and make progress in the future.
