Swim Ireland’s licensing scheme is based across all aquatic disciplines within the Swim Ireland remit (Swimming, Masters, Synchronised Swimming, Diving, Waterpolo and Open Water Swimming) and is rolled out across all 32 counties.
The purpose and benefits of licensing are not only to help raise, maintain and regulate standards of practice and help professionalise certain aspects and areas within the aquatics but also to help Swim Ireland reward and recognise those working within swimming both as volunteers and paid professionals for their achievement of qualifications.
Licensing is MANDATORY for all Swim Ireland affiliated club registered Coaches and Teachers – please note that Coaches and Teachers not registered as such with their clubs are NOT covered by the Club’s insurance to coach or teach.
Licensing is mandatory for all Swim Ireland affiliated club registered Coaches and Teachers. Your Swim Ireland Teacher/Coach license will remain valid for 1 year and every year Swim Ireland Teachers and Coaches will be required to renew their license, by following the mandatory criteria.
