A fantastic £5,300 has been awarded to Louth Dolphins Swimming Club to enable their volunteers to climb the coaching ladder.
With the cost of training courses for teachers and coaches causing concern in the swimming world, the donation is especially timely.
It costs £300-400 to reach level one of the Swim 21 coaching qualifications, £650 for level two and up to £2,000 to reach level three.
Thanks to an application by Tracy Challis, Louth Dolphins grants and sponsorship Secretary, ELDC have awarded the club the money to enable their volunteers to qualify at all three levels.
The first group has recently qualified and arrangement is in hand to run the next course from The Meridian Leisure Centre, a first for Louth.
Development coach James McIntyre is progressing through the expensive and arduous level three qualification whilst assistant skills coach Adam McIntyre is coming to the end of his progression to level two coach.
Louth Dolphins want to say a big thank you ELDC for supporting their coaching programme
