The coaching at SIMMSport is provided by students from St Mary’s, many of whom are studying sport and/or teaching degrees themselves. The programme gives the students a chance to develop their coaching skills and gain experience working with young people. They are passionate about what they do and bring great enthusiasm and positivity to motivate the young people they coach.
