Coaches

We are very lucky to have several fabulous coaches and assistant coaches. They have all spent many years swimming (or watching their children swim!) before progressing into coaching and have a desire to pass on their love of the sport to the next generation of young swimmers.

Each squad has designated coaches, who get to know the swimmers in their groups very well so they can give them the best possible guidance to achieve their potential.
