Swim Ulster Webinars for Parents / Coaches and Swimmers

As an alternative, and hopefully an excellent way to help take your mind away from the current situation we are going to run the education content in the form of webinars and online learning.

This is an opportunity for all the parents and swimmers (and coaches) to take part in the age group nutrition and lifestyle presentation that Andy Reid will be running this Saturday 18th April 2020 at 10am. The link for this event should be below. (This is a repeat of the one that was held in Belfast in the Grove Health & Wellbeing Centre graciously hosted by Leander)

Virtual Webinar: Are Group Nutrition and Lifestyle

It is a great opportunity to learn something and we have made some adaptions to ensure some areas are particularly relevant for our current situation.

There will be an additional opportunity to engage in this presentation running on Wednesday 29th April 2020.

If you haven’t looked, there is a comprehensive online learning schedule on the Swim Ireland website as well.

Congratulations to the new Club Captain!!
