Becoming a swimming coach is popular across Nigeria. Nothing quite beats the thrill of a competitive race, and so swimmers often decide to become coaches after calling time on their competitive careers.
But it’s not just a former swimmer that ends up becoming a swimming coach; there are plenty of Nigerian coaches with no previous experience of competitive swimming.
What they all do have however, is an unrelenting drive, competitiveness and will to be the best they can be.
Luckily for you, swimming coach is the most popular role advertised on Careers in Aquatics.
The majority of employers look to employ at least Level 2 qualified coaches as this is the minimum coaching requirement to be able to coach on your own although some will take on Level 1 qualified coaches who are training towards their next stage.
