Coaching is a great way to harness your passion for swimming and be actively involved. It is not only exciting and self-satisfying but you can have a positive influence on people's lifelong involvement in swimming. Coaching is a rewarding job at all levels of swimming as you are responsible for helping people improve and develop their swimming, you can pass on your own experiences and watch people progress through the different pathways of swimming.

All swimming coaches must be accredited. 

 Swimming Australia and State Swimming Associations require coaches to hold valid accreditation to:

  • Gain access to the pool deck and warm up areas at their sanctioned swim meets
  • Be considered for selection as a representative coach
  • Have the opportunity to present other coaching courses
  • Ensure that a code of behaviour has been signed
  • Acknowledge that a working with children check has been sighted
  • Enable action to be taken when allegations of a breach of the codes of behaviour are made
  • Coaching Opportunities in Victoria
  • Swimming Victoria

    The next call for coach EOIs for Swimming Victoria Development Programs and Teams will be in early 2022.
