Swim Ulster Club and Coach Development Workshops

Swim Ulster is running a programme of events for coach and club development.

These are specifically designed to help Ulster Clubs.

 8th October Anti-bullying Workshop FREE 6.30 pm Derriaghy Room Lagan Valley LeisurePlex Lisburn

This anti-bullying workshop will cover what we mean by bullying behaviour in our club, how we deal with it by giving practical advice and guidance for leaders who might find themselves in a situation that they need to act on and the workshop will dispel some myths about bullying behaviour.  You will also cover using a no blame approach and how the anti-bullying policy can help prevent bullying in a club through raising awareness.  

11th October GYM EDGE £50 Bangor Aurora 9.30am – 4.00 pm

12th October Effective Sculling Bangor Aurora 2.30-5.30 pm

15th October Grove Leisure Centre 

5th Nov Cookstown Leisure Centre

Mood Matters – Wellbeing  FREE 7.00 pm

What does ‘Mood Matters’ cover?

The workshop will cover the topic of well-being and how to look after the mental health of young people.  As adults, we take care of the physical well-being of young people, and can recognise when a young person is well and fit or physically hurt or injured; however we might not recognise the signs when someone is finding it hard to cope with their sport, school, exams and generally all the things that go on in their lives.  This workshop will help adults to understand how we can support young people and promote positive mental health in our club environment. 

24th October Safeguarding Children Workshop £20 Lagan Valley LeisurePlex 7.00pm

​​4th November Club Children’s Officer Grove Leisure Centre Belfast 6.30pm

If you are interested in attending any of these workshops or want to find out more information please email Ruth McQuillan at Swim Ulster  ruth@swimulster.net

Team Manager and Safeguarding Children Workshops September 2014

Anyone helping with kids activities in the club needs to have attended a Safeguarding course. This includes squad reps and those helping at squad team building events (not necessarily swimming).

When swimmers travel to an “away competition” with any overnight stay, they need a minimum of two adults to act as Team Managers if they are travelling as a team. Swimmer gain a lot by travelling and staying as a team but without qualified volunteers we have been unable to offer this for the past season. It would be great if more parents could come forward to help as it shares the role and it is great fun. You need NO swimming knowledge.

More information can be obtained by speaking to one of the committee or the Club Children’s Officer. You will also find information on Swim Ireland website

Swim Ulster are holding workshops on

14th September Team Manager Queens PEC 2.30-5.30 pm £30

21st September Safeguarding Workshop Queens PEC 2.30-5.30 pm £15
