Level 1 Teaching Course
KSC are running a pilot programme to get our swimmers qualified in the field of swim teaching and hopefully coaching as well. Unfortunately we cannot host the teaching course in Tralee as we don't have access to enough swimming classes to fulfil the criteria for the course. It will take place in Fermoy.
Information on dates and times here.
