Coaching Education

Think you have what it takes to become a coach? Want to become qualified? …. you’ve come to the right place. A coach’s journey is never-ending, whether you are just starting your journey or you are an experienced high-level coach. Here at My Sports Academy we are not only passionate about youth development, but coach development too. As a team of coaches we understand the importance of continuing to learn, develop and improve, to ensure we are at the cutting edge of our profession. We are delighted to offer such opportunities to the UAE coaching community as an ASA & Highfield Approved Centre.


The ASA (Amateur Swim Association) is the leading provider of aquatic qualifications in England and Highfield is the governing body for lifeguarding and lifesaving in the UK, both are recognised as setting the industry standards in equipping learners with the knowledge and skills to perform successfully within the aquatic workplace. We are delighted to have achieved official ASA and Highfield Approved Centre status and as such are able to offer a wide range of Internationally recognised and accredited qualifications. We are the premier Aquatic Education hub in the UAE with the most frequent and wide ranging course offering and with the ability to arrange courses around your needs and requirements. For more information please email [email protected] or telephone 04 2447848.
