Can you help our swimmers achieve their goals?
Here at Eastleigh Swim Club, we are always delighted to hear from motivated individuals who share our passion for swimming.
We currently have swimmers at all levels within the club, from Learn2Swim through to National Finalists and Medallists.
If you are a qualified Swimming Coach, Strength and Conditioning Coach (with an understanding of swimmers' land training needs) or Physio who can aid with injury prevention/core strengthening and rehabilitation, please feel free to drop us a line to register your interest in our club.
We also welcome contact from Sport and Fitness Students, particularly if they can, within their own course studies, assist our swimmers with land-side support, nutritional advice and training needs.
Additionally, we are intrigued to explore the benefits of using Pilates or Yoga (even clinical) within our land training programme. If this is something you could assist us with, please feel free to get in touch.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
