Here's Bart Rolet from Montreal talking to course tutor Adam Young midway through the Perth course on his experience:

Certified Coach Training
The task of becoming a Swim Smooth Coach is no small undertaking - it takes around a year of study and practise, even for experienced swimming coaches. The two weeks in Perth is very much the highlight - and the intensive experience that everyone looks forward to - but just as important is the training, practice and mentoring we give every coach through their whole training.
The squads in Perth are run by our Head Coach Paul Newsome and are very much the heart and soul of all of Swim Smooth's coaching. It's where all of our coaching development takes place on the hotbed of a huge squad with 350 regular members (and thousands visiting every year for video analysis):
Not only do the coaches receive intensive training in Perth but they are also inspired by experiencing the true vibe of Swim Smooth at 'the source' of it all, witnessing first hand the sorts of improvements and performances swimmers can achieve - all whilst having fun at the same time. This is potentially life-changing for them and the swimmers they will coach in the future.
The squads feature all levels of swimmer, of all ages, shapes and sizes. At the (very) pointy end we have elite swimmers and triathletes training for international events. We have a large and passionate team of open water swimmers and triathletes of all speeds and enthusiastic beginners taking their first laps of swimming. One of our most famous swimmers Mega Megan is still improving. Our oldest swimmer Barry #surname# is still teaching the young guns how to do it at 79. And we have "Super" Sue Oldham the world age record holder for swimming the English Channel (68 year young). Amazing stuff!
