Swimming Coach


The Special Olympics Waikato currently trains on a Sunday evening at WaterWorld in Te Rapa. Our athletes who compete in Special Olympics, develop improved physical fitness and greater self confidence. They exhibit courage, enthusiasm and build lasting friendships. These life skills enhance their ability to live a normal productive life.

We are looking for new swimming coaches to help our athletes. They are mostly doing emergent skills, some walk in the pool. But there are some athletes who are very skilled and aiming for National Games and World Games.

The training day can be changed to suit a coach if a Sunday evening didn't work, but this needs to be in consultation with the current athletes etc.


A "can do" attitude, be open to learning and undertaking training where appropriate, ability to work as part of a team and time to invest.
Friendly, patient, and reliable.
A love of helping athletes with Special Needs.
Needs up to date vaccination status.

A Police background check is required for this role.
