Junior Coach and Rat Pack Programs

The REST Junior Coaching and Rat Pack programs aim to promote leadership, sportsmanship, spirit and introduce coaching skills to swimmers age 13+. It is the perfect way for older swimmers to experience the life of a coach and a great stepping stone to becoming a future coach.

Junior coaches will focus more on developing coaching skills, while Rat Pack members will focus on leading team in spirit and sportsmanship (although roles will overlap).  The REST Head and Assistant Coaches will lead and train participants.

Basic Requirements

  • Age 15+ for Junior Coach, 13+ for Rat Pack
