A day in the life of a Venue Coordinator – Gemma Coster 820 537 Marketing

We caught up with Sport Generation’s Gemma Coster, to find out about her typical day as a Venue Coordinator and why she loves teaching children to swim.

What made you become a swimming teacher?

I’ve always had a love for the water. As a lifeguard I often watched swimming lessons and thought I could do that. I find teaching very interesting and it’s the most rewarding job you can have.

What makes a great swimming lesson?

The best lesson for me is when the teacher and the child are both having fun.  Children are much more willing to learn if they are enjoying the lesson.

What is a typical day like?

A typical day as a Venue Coordinator includes working alongside such a great team of staff in the office. Keeping up to date with lessons, taking bookings, dealing with general enquires and making sure my amazing coaches are having a fab time in their lessons!

What’s your favourite part about being a SG swimming teacher?

The most rewarding part of being a swimming teacher would be seeing children you have taught for more than 2 terms blossom and improve from a non-swimmer to a confident independent swimmer.

What’s the toughest thing about being a SG swimming teacher?

Wow… that’s a tough question! I’d say there is always good and bad days, but my advice is to always stay positive! Children could take 2 days to learn or up to 200 days, but they will become amazing little swimmers!

What exercise do you do to stay fit and healthy?

Of course, I go swimming when I’m not teaching. I love climbing and it’s so good for your core strength and overall fitness! I also like going for bike rides by the river on my days off.

What do you eat before and after teaching swimming?

I try and have a banana or a protein bar to give me some energy. Normally my dinner is the biggest meal of the day as I get very hungry after lessons.

What have you learned about life from being a swimming teacher?

I have learnt so much over my years of teaching and I am still learning as I go. Always finding fun and exciting things to add and adapt to my lessons, to keep my kids engaged and having lots of fun!

Fast talk

Kit bag essential?

Favourite swimming brand?

I don’t have a favourite, but I do like Arena and Speedo brands as their costumes last 10 times longer!
