International swimming federation (FINA) instructor Gerd Nottelmann is expected to arrive in the country today for a one week swimming coaches’ course, the Tanzania Swimming Association (TSA) technical director, Marcelino Ngalioma, said yesterday.
Ngalioma said the Beginner Level course will take place at the International School of Tanganyika (IST) Upanga campus starting on Monday and 56 coaches have already been registered.
