ISAAC DUNNING

Swimming

Isaac volunteers his time with Port Glasgow Otters and Inverclyde Amateur Swimming Club where he helps teach the young people who attend with swimming coaching. 

Isaac was also involved during lockdown with the “young start program”. This was a program designed and delivered through a series of online sessions by Scottish disability sport (and funded by the national lottery community fund) to help young athletes  with a disability realise their full potential, gain confidence and progress their sporting careers into a more coaching roll.

 

Isaac continues to help teach and coach children of various ages,  water confidence and abilities, techniques and levels of swimming.

 

In January 2021, Isaac led an online coaching course led by Scottish swimming and gained his level 1 coaching qualification.

He  always strives to provide a positive happy environment when he is teaching and coaching with inclusion and equality  at the forefront of what he does.
