The Coaching Programme

The role of the coaching programme is to develop the training and competition programmes, and to coach the swimmers on a day to day basis, based on the Long Term Athlete Development methodology adapted and endorsed by British Swimming and incorporating the latest developments in technique and training methods. Coaches are also responsible for team selection and support for swimmers at relevant meets, the education of coaches, swimmers and parents, and the associated development and administration of the programme.

The Club?s Role

The Club?s role is to support the coaching programme, and to assist with matters including membership, records, competition entries, transport, accommodation, social events, publicity, fundraising, sponsorship, merchandising, policy formulation and welfare.

The Management Committee

The management of the Club is the responsibility of the Management Committee whose members are elected annually at the Club AGM. This means that Stockport Metro is run by volunteers ? ordinary members who donate their time and expertise free of charge ? in conjunction with the Club coaching staff and Stockport Sports Trust.

The Management Committee consists of the Life Members, the Chief Coach of the Stockport Sports Trust Swimming Coaching Scheme, two further representatives of the Stockport Sports Trust, and ten members of Stockport Metro Swimming Club. The ten members are proposed, seconded and elected by ballot at the Annual General Meeting. The Committee meets once a month.
