FINA Level 2 Coaching Clinic

Monday, June 6th, 2011

THE MINISTRY OF SPORTS JOINS FINA AND GRENADA SWIMMING ASSOCIATION FOR LEVEL 2 FINA COACHING CLINIC
The Ministry of Sports is pleased to team up with FINA and The Grenada Amateur Swimming Association to facilitate a national Coaching Clinic hosted by top international Coach Kimberly Bade.

The Clinic began from Tuesday 23rd – 31st May 2011 at the Good Hope Pool, St. Georges with daily sessions from 9am – 5pm. Fifty enthusiastic coaches and teachers of both primary and secondary schools from across the tri-island state  are expected to  attend the Clinic, which is the second level – a follow on to the Level 1 clinic conducted in  2010.

Mrs. Kimberly Bade said the course will cover swimming at a very technically detailed level, for Beginners through Elite – covering all four competitive strokes as well as starts and turns, because it is all about the science of swimming and technical excellence resulting in speed.

GASA’s vision for this Coaching Clinic is  to equip as many teachers and coaches in Grenada and Carriacou to be able to teach swimming in every school across the nation in order to give every child an opportunity to  learn to swim and be safe in our waters and to be able to  compete at various levels if so desired – we want no child left behind. This will also offer the participants  an excellent opportunity to gain a second skill which can be used in obtaining extra income along with obtaining FINA certification which is recognised in all countries.

GASA is very delighted to be part of our nation’s future education and development, by investing in our precious resources, children and  teachers.
