The Swim Ireland Club Day & CCO Forum takes place on Saturday 23 March 2019 at the Absolute Hotel Limerick. Registration is from 9.30am with the both workshops running from 10am – 1.30pm (lunch will be provided at 1.30pm)
The Club Development Day will focus on the Coach/Committee relationship and will be integral to help us identify supports we can offer and to formulate up a partnership agreement which clubs can individually tailor as circumstances are unique.
These workshops are free and interactive so I would ask that clubs engage with these and have as many coach and committee members attend. They can book directly on the links below.
