Volunteer Coaches Program
The BCSSA Volunteer Coaches' Program was first developed in 1998 when BCSSA wanted to work with clubs to promote, encourage and assist senior swimmers in making the transition from "swimmer" to "coach", by giving them the basic information to start on their coaching career.
When developing this program it was noted that several coaches already ran volunteer coach programs within their own clubs. It was decided to join forces and resources and create this program to standardize information across the entire Province. The course and materials were developed by TJ Cunningham, Karlene Epp, Carrie Matheson and Rosemary Smith, who volunteered to take on the project in late 1997. Most recently, it was updated by Stephanie and Elizabeth Pharo in the spring of 2011.
We are currently looking to update this program, details will be released soon.
