Following the restructuring and amalgamation of swimming and waterpolo nurseries, Sirens organized a coaches’ seminar which was held on Saturday 25th of June between 9.00am and 12.00.  The seminar was held at the Institute for Physical Education and Sport studies.  This seminar brought together the majority of sirens coaches who teach and coach swimming at various levels within the club.

Following the opening addresses by the clubs president and by the chairperson of the committee, head Coach Davina Mangion shared with the club coaches’ information and resources acquired at the swimming course she recently attended last in Hungary. Coach Mangion delivered a presentation on swimming pedagogies, teaching and coaching styles, safety issues and management protocols. This presentation was followed by video clips on games and progressions used when teaching young swimmers.

The concluding part of the seminar focused on the summer programmes which will kick off on July 4th, 2011.  Sirens thank the Institute for Physical Education and Sport and all coaches.
