Located in Arrowtown (nr Queenstown)

Time Committment:

We hold a week long swim coach sessions for kids aged 4-16 during the last week in January before going back to school. This takes place in the evenings 6-7pm
Then in February/March we have training sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Friday nights from 6-7pm. On the Friday nights we have a free BBQ and ribbon night. Volunteer coaches are required for all of these sessions so any time you can offer on either or all of these nights would be welcome.

Skills Required:

Volunteers are required to have a Swim Coach Certificate or be training towards it. The club can offer help to complete training and assist with funding to attend swim coach lessons.

Can provide expenses for travel.

Skills Gained:

Volunteers can work towards their Swim Coach Certificate whilst supporting a local, non-profit community swim club. You will be directly helping young children and teenagers develop their swimming skills in a friendly, safe and pleasant environment and we hope will gain satisfaction from meeting new people, being part of the community and sharing your skills.
