Training to be a SS Coach is a huge undertaking. Developing the necessary skills and experience of advanced video analysis, stroke correction, squad coaching and open water skills takes time and cannot be rushed. We are fortunate enough to be able to pick our coaches from a large talent pool but even for very experienced coaches, training takes at least 1 to 2 years.

Nutrition Tips: Paul's Powerball Recipe


Always hungry and looking for a healthy energy-giving snack between meals? Or wondering what you should eat before and after a swim session? Try SS Head Coach Paul Newsome's "Powerballs" (!). Paul's just put together a short video doing his very best Jamie Oliver impression to explain how to make them (it's super easy). Guaranteed to give you a satisfying slow energy release.
