We are very pleased with the heightened interest in our coach mentorship program this season. A number of mentorship visits have already taken place with more coming up in the near future.
We still have funding available for up to three additional mentorship opportunities, however, so we are putting the call out for a second round of applications.
The deadline for submitting applications will be Friday, February 9, 2018.
SwimBC is once again pleased to offer the opportunity for coaches to further their professional development through mentorship opportunities with successful coaches.
The Coach Mentorship application guideline document linked below outlines what the application should include, as well as the deliverables required to receive reimbursement of expenses to visit the mentor coach one or more times.
To assist you in determining potential mentor coaches, the document also includes a list of coaches who have indicated that they would welcome apprentice coaches from other clubs.
You can contact one of these coaches, or if you have someone else in mind, you can reach out to them.
As stated in the RFP, there are a limited number of opportunities available, and in general, it’ll be "first-in, first-getting-$$" until our funding is exhausted.
