Club La Santa, Lanzarote

Club La Santa, Lanzarote

The remit:
An assistant coach is required for the Spencer Training Camp at Club La Santa, Lanzarote for 2 – 9 May 2019. You’d be working alongside myself (Dave Perry) and another coach delivering an exciting, challenging and varied programme to around 60-70 masters swimmers of all ages.

An STA or ASA/Swim England Level 2 Certificate in Teaching Swimming is the minimum requirement. Any coaching qualifications and age group or masters coaching experience would be an advantage but not essential as we already have two qualified and experienced coaches to deliver the programme.

The programme is written by Head Coach (Dave Perry) and the role is to simply assist in delivery of the programme, under the supervision of the Head Coach.

This position is not a highly paid affair but it is an excellent opportunity to gain some invaluable experience in Masters coaching in a wonderful sunny location, meet some amazing people and have a lot of fun in the process! There is some contribution towards expenses, as follows:

  • Payment towards flight (up to £150)
  • Accommodation based on 3 sharing (£230)

So there’s £380.00 to help cover costs but this role is more about the experience, the wonderful setting, the friendly swimmers and their families and you get to use all the sports facilities for free! Check out the link below to find out more:

For further information and to apply for this position please email Dave Perry at or call Dave Perry on 07752 268 846.
