Long-Term Perspective

We are committed to a long-term Programme focused on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;

 

Systemic

Our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather

People

The  Programme  is  centered  on  the  people  within  the  system  –  athletes,  coaches,  support  staff,  and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world-class standard for the good of the Programme as a whole;

 

Positive Journey

We aspire to make participation in the Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the Programme and having created an aspiration for others to be involved

 

Applicants must display:

 

▪    Knowledge and experience in the development, organisation, implementation and coordination of high performing Club programmes at Development level and the development of athletes through appropriate coaching standards and expectations to ensure that all individuals within the Region/s are given the opportunity to maximise their potential, including an understanding of swimming specific Long Term Athlete Development models

 

▪    Excellent communication skills, including the mentoring, managing and enabling Club swimming coaches, volunteers and other key partners

 

▪    The  building  and  maintaining  of  strong  relationships  with  Clubs,  coaches,  athletes,  athlete  families, schools and partner service providers to continually encourage the ‘team around the athlete’ to progress them towards the next level of their individual development

 

▪    The development of the National Programme as a whole to ensure the continued success of competitive swimming within Swim Ireland

 

Applicants must understand that:

 

▪            They will visit Clubs and coaching programmes to support coaches and athletes as and when required

 

▪            They will work all necessary hours to fulfil the requirements of the post

 

▪            There will be a requirement to work unsocial hours including early mornings, evenings and weekends

▪    A comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including three referees, one of which must be the current employer

With a similar role already existent in the Ulster Region, the goal of the two positions  are to oversee  and ensure the best possible Development Pathway delivery and coaching within Club programmes within the Region/s by working in conjunction with Clubs, coaches and volunteers to ensure that opportunities and experiences for athletes exist for them to progress, thrive and reach their full potential

“High performing people in a high performance system working in unison to consistently achieve Olympic and World medals.”

 

Central to achieving this Vision is a core set of principles which underpin this role:

 

Long-Term Perspective

We are committed to a long-term Programme focused on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;

 

Systemic

Our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather

than one-off successes based on individual athletes;

 

People

The  Programme  is  centered  on  the  people  within  the  system  –  athletes,  coaches,  support  staff,  and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world-class standard for the good of the Programme as a whole;

 

Positive Journey

We aspire to make participation in the Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the Programme and having created an aspiration for others to be involved

 

Applicants must display:

 

▪    Knowledge and experience in the development, organisation, implementation and coordination of high performing Club programmes at Development level and the development of athletes through appropriate coaching standards and expectations to ensure that all individuals within the Region/s are given the opportunity to maximise their potential, including an understanding of swimming specific Long Term Athlete Development models

 

▪    Excellent communication skills, including the mentoring, managing and enabling Club swimming coaches, volunteers and other key partners

 

▪    The  building  and  maintaining  of  strong  relationships  with  Clubs,  coaches,  athletes,  athlete  families, schools and partner service providers to continually encourage the ‘team around the athlete’ to progress them towards the next level of their individual development

 

▪    The development of the National Programme as a whole to ensure the continued success of competitive swimming within Swim Ireland

 

Applicants must understand that:

 

▪            They will visit Clubs and coaching programmes to support coaches and athletes as and when required

 

▪            They will work all necessary hours to fulfil the requirements of the post

 

▪            There will be a requirement to work unsocial hours including early mornings, evenings and weekends

All applications will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and should be made by submitting the following to hp@swimireland.ie

 

▪    A cover letter to include a personal statement addressing the essential criteria, and why an applicant believes their skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position

 

▪    A comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including three referees, one of which must be the current employer

The sale also includes my other 3 products, the BACK-IT BALL®, Speed TU-BE®, and the Decorative Pace Clock.

 

The intent of this sale is to keep the legacy of all 4 products alive. I built the ‘FRAID NOTS® brand one demonstration at a time, with thousands of demonstrations at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex (the old Hall of Fame Pool), and at pools around the country. Whoever decides to purchase the company will have to be, or find a young male or female to replace me, and possibly make a new DVD®, along with having a great deal of social media experience.
