Beds ASA – Phase 2 Development Camps 2018

Bedfordshire ASA will be holding two Phase 2 Development Camps: September 8th and November 17th. The camps will be held at Inspire, Luton from 2-5pm. These are for 12-year olds and the selection criteria has already been circulated. Swimmers who are selected to attend will be notified through their clubs. The main emphasis of the camps will be on Starts and Turns.

Skills Coaches:

We hope that the skills coach who were involved last year (Louise King, Lawrence Palmer and Andrea Wears) will be available for these camps. However, we would invite applications for a fourth Skills Coach who must hold a coaching qualification, have all appropriate DBS and safeguarding certificates and be available for both camps. Applications to be submitted to the Development Secretary by July 31st.

We also seek applications from candidates who are already TM1 qualified to shadow and assist the County Welfare Officer in the management of these camps. Again, applications should be submitted to the County Welfare officer by 31st July  (

At our previous camps, Observer Coaches have found value in seeing the land training and pool work, and we invite application from coaches in all County clubs. These applications should be submitted to the County Welfare Officer by 31st August (
