Juniors/JDS/CDS/SDS Coach

I have been involved with CABSC since 1990 as a swimmer until retiring” at the age of 25. I returned in 2013 when both my children wanted to join and it didnt take long before I was roped in to helping out both on & off poolside. I was parent coordinator for a couple of years before becoming a coach and an official. I gained my level 2 teaching certificate in 2015 and soon after took over the mantle of Junior Squad Lead Coach. I found this to be the most rewarding of all the coaching I have done, seeing new swimmers learn and develop through the squads. I have recently stepped down from this position to spend more time with my kids in their other sporting activities, but continue to keep my hand in where I can.

Mark PATTERSON

Masters Coach

Email

I started swimming at age 12, and had a fairly successful career as a junior swimmer, mainly as part of a very good relay team, which went onto win Silver at the National Age Groups. I started swimming and competing as a Master 30 years ago, and set up the Masters squad in the club about 18 years ago with my wife. As a Master swimmer I have won several titles at the National championships and currently hold 14 East Midlands records across various age groups. I enjoy coaching and swimming with the Masters squad where we work hard, but also have fun.

County Squad Coach

I have been involved with the club since 2012 when my two boys, James and Matt, became interested in swimming after the London Olympics. A former swimmer, I started out as a nervous none swimmer at the age of 8 and by age 10 I had achieved a county title and went on to win a bronze medal at nationals swimming for the City of Leeds (Olympic Gold Medallist, Adrian Moorhouse, was part of the team) . As soon as we joined CABSC I wanted to get involved poolside because it is far more interesting than the balcony! I went onto complete my level 1 teaching award soon after joining the club and Ive enjoyed coaching at all squads over the years as my boys have progressed through the club. My favourite session has to be a threshold set, theres nothing better than seeing the swimmers really pushing their limits and then seeing the look of accomplishment when its over. One of my best CABSC memories is organising a club trip to to train at the Olympic pool in London. The faces on the younger swimmers as they walked onto the deck are something that I will remember for a long time.

I qualified as a coach in October 2019 after helping on poolside in training and as a team manager for a while. I have 2 sons that train with CABSC and I am a 'retired' swimmer competing up to nationals a long time ago! I have experience as a coach in a number of sports  over many years and a secondary school PE teacher for the last 20 years. I really enjoy coaching the swimmers and seeing them make progress. The discipline of training and the wider skills they learn makes the swimmers a great group of people to work with.

Qualified in October 2019 after the CABSC drive for more qualified poolside helpers. I started my poolside career as a team manager over five years ago & really enjoyed the atmosphere, chatting to the swimmers & ensuring they got to where they needed to be at open meets & team galas. So coaching seemed a natural progression. I have two children in the club, Frankie & James & we started with CABSC back in 2012. I dont have a swimming background but in my youth competed to midland level in gymnastics & also enjoyed national team success in tumbling. Im interested in all sport & being involved with CABSC has kept my sporting curiosity alive. I love to see children enjoying swimming & developing skills & confidence through CABSC. Best set - dives & racing.

County Squad Coach

A footballer in his youth Dean has since seen the light and as a relative newcomer to swimming got involved with CABSC after watching his girls, Jenna and Jess, from the balcony for several years. Team manager and level 1 coach courses soon followed and he is now very much enjoying assisting James and the rest of the team coaching the County squad and helping out poolside at galas. Dean says, Its a great experience working with these swimmers. They are not only talented and committed as individuals but are equally committed in their loyalty to the club and support for each other and the team. Theyre all highly motivated to continue improving and be the best they can be. Im constantly learning from them and from the other coaches and volunteers and hope to be able to support them all in the years to come.” An early riser Dean can normally be found poolside for the Monday and Friday morning sessions and most Friday evenings.

I am a member of the coaching staff at CABSC. My daughter is also a member of the club and I wanted to give something back into the sport after having a successful swimming career when I was younger. I had the pleasure of swimming at the Sydney Olympic Games for Great Britain and held the British records for 100 and 200 breaststroke long and short for a number of years. My highest world ranking was 7 and I gained a number of medals in international competition. I still hold a few Nottinghamshire county records that have stood for nearly 20 years and it would be lovely, as a coach, to help a swimmer break those records!
