Opportunities for swimmers

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

We encourage our swimmers to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and participants are able to volunteer at Leander Swimming Club. However, we need to be able to manage numbers for reasons of health and safety and logistics, so all swimmers who wish to join the scheme need to apply using the contact form, and will only be able to start once their applications have been approved.


From time to time, Leander needs to recruit new coaches. All vacancies for Level 2 coaches upwards will be advertised on the British Swimming website. We would like to encourage Leander swimmers to stay in the sport for as long as possible and therefore encourage them to do ASA Level 1 courses once they are aged over 16, however we do not provide funding or operate the courses. We will do our best to offer coaching opportunities for suitably qualified Leander swimmers but there is no guarantee we will be able to use them.
