Coaching and Poolside
At Dunfermline ASC all coaches, teachers and poolside helpers are volunteers who give up their spare time to share coaching duties for the club.
Sessions are run by qualified coaches/teachers, assisted by poolside helpers. Although poolside helpers are often experienced club swimmers this is not a requirement.
UKCC Courses are available for anyone aspiring to take up teaching, often with funding available.
