Swim Wales Leaders Award - HOVSC

On Sunday 13th October 2013, 13 Swimmers aged between 14 to 16 years old attended the Swim Wales Leaders award.  The group swapped their swimming costumes for tracksuits and changed roles from swimmer to coach.  The course was delivered by Penny John-Pearse education manager for Swim Wales. 

The course was split in to 3 modules. Module 1 comprised of the group learning about communication through fun and games.  The second module was all about planning, where the group learned through fun and games. They planned the games and played the games, the group then reviewed the games they had created and changed the games accordingly as per their reviews. The final module was about swimming specific, where they learned about swimming techniques, teaching techniques and  learned the basics of coaching young children. 

This was a fantastic opportunity for the swimmers to experience swimming from a coaches perspective. Swim Wales also gave the group the opportunity to join the hour bank scheme where they can bank the hours they volunteer and gain rewards for their hard work.
