Meta4mance Coach Up Program for Swimming Coaches

Are you a swimming coach looking to equip yourself with more knowledge and skills? Are you passionate about swimming, coaching and performance? Do you strive to offer your swimmers the best possible coaching? Do you dream of taking swimmers to their full potential?

Well at Meta4mance we are passionate about coaching and coaches. If this appeals to you please read on!

Meta4mance Coaching has developed a unique course that will provide coaches with specific knowledge, tools and skills to maximise their coaching ability.

It combines:
• Exercise and sport science,
• Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and mental coaching
• Mentorship training
• Exclusive Meta4mance Coaching models, charts and tools

The objective is to give coaches of any level the edge, not only in terms of the swimming specific information they acquire but also in the interpersonal ability to convey the information in the most effective way. It is a comprehensive and holistic course that will enable you as a coach to operate at a higher level.

Meta4mance wanted to create a course that is available to anyone regardless of your location so the Course can be conducted online via Skype.

We are currently conducting this program with several clubs and coaches in South Africa, Europe and the Middle East with great success

At Meta4mance we believe that through the combination of coaching principles learnt in high performance sport and NLP coaching, scientific methods and business concepts, we can assist anyone or team to optimise their performance in an holistic way.
