Water Polo Coaching Course Opportunity Too Good To Miss

The Institute of Swimming are in the process of setting up an ASA Level 1 Coaching Water Polo course which will be hosted at Hillingdon. The course tutor will be Steve Baker. Courses for Water polo coaches are rare so here is an opportunity you may not want to miss.

The proposed dates are :

Sunday 1st November 10am – 5pm Classroom

Saturday 7th November 3:30 – 6pm Practical

Sunday 8th November 10am – 5pm Classroom

Saturday 14th November 3:30 – 6pm Practical

Sunday 15th November 10am – 5pm Classroom

Saturday 21st November 3:30 – 6pm Practical

The course will fit around usual Saturday Junior training sessions. So the coaches who are learning can practice their coaching skills during the sessions.

The theory sessions will be held on Sundays in a classroom at Hillingdon SLC.

The cost

The ASA have funding to support clubs if they get 11 learners to commit to the course, the cost would be around £250 per person. Otherwise if it were open to all the cost will be the usual RRP of £395 per person. We are working hard to find candidates from other clubs so we can achieve the £250 per person cost as a starting point.

Clubs and local councils will support learners with information on bursaries so the cost can be reduced further.

The ASA syllabus for this qualification is available online via the ASA Awarding Body website and will detail the full content / criteria of the qualification for you –


The course is not yet registered so all details subject to confirmation. Please contact Sue Seagroatt at for more information or details of how to book.
