The Swimming Trust has agreed to fund the training of four tutors to help develop the grass roots of water polo.
The courses will be delivered by the Institute of Swimming with candidates being recruited from across the Swim England Regions.
The Swimming Trust recognised that the shortage of fully trained tutors was a pinch point in the development of coaches at all levels. This meant that clubs were often not able to provide the players with the best opportunities and that the development of new talent was being missed.
This new programme will provide new opportunities at all levels of the game.
Recruitment to the programme will be announced by the Institute of Swimming
