This is an exciting part of Morpeth ASC which enables you to give some time to the club, whilst learning and developing new skills.
The programme is run by Nicki Hewitt and Becki McGuire.
We recruit new members at the beginning of the swim season.
Our next recruitment will be in August 2023 in time for the season start in September 2023.
The aquatic helper’s role at MASC involves supporting the delivery of training sessions, under the supervision of one of our qualified swimming coaches/teachers.
You must be at least 13yrs old, you need to have a good understanding of how sessions are structured within MASC; be enthusiastic, organised and keen to assist in the development of our swimmers and you should have a basic understanding of swimming and the safety required within our sessions.
As part of the programme, aquatic helpers also have the opportunity to complete the Swim England recognised Aquatic Helper qualification before progressing to their Assistant Teacher/ Coach course in the furure.
Those aquatic helpers 16yrs & over will be expected to have a DBS check and will need to attend Safeguarding training
Safeguarding training is also available for our younger aquatic helpers
Funded Level 1 teaching courses will be allocated to those AH's who have served the longest, have a good attendance and committment record and have attained the appropriate age.
