Women in Sport Week Preview

Swim Ireland is set to celebrate Women in Sport Week (March 6th-12th)

International Women’s Day lands on March 8th and Swim Ireland are delighted to be celebrating the week that’s in it!

Swim Ireland is committed to equality. Our goal is to ensure gender parity across all areas of the aquatic disciplines from club to national level. Everybody has a relationship with the water, females across Ireland should have the opportunity to be involved at all levels in our sports from; participation to coaching, officiating to leadership.

We have plenty on offer this year to celebrate this special week! Including lots of discounts on continual professional development (CPD) courses and e-Learning resources, showcasing our wonderful women working across our disciplines and the various WIS programmes, opportunities and events that Swim Ireland has to offer!

Check out the discounted courses on offer here (click titles to view booking form) these will be discounted for women, when booking during WIS week. Don’t worry guys, we will have the same in store on International Men’s Day, November 19th!

An event available to book now is our Artistic Swimming Taster session taking place on March 11th at NAC, Dublin this is open to members over the age of 10yrs and is a great opportunity to learn the various skills involved in Artistic Swimming. The skills of Artistic swimming are a fun new way of learning how to move your body in the water, these skills cross over to all aquatic disciplines, helping you master them in your own sport! To finish the skills session, we have an Artistic Swimming display from international artistic swimmers to show you how it is done! Book here!
