We are excited to have him join us at Staines Swimming Club where I’m sure you will all make him feel very welcome and give him your support.

Message from Justin:
I am really pleased to be joining Staines as Head of Performance from the 16th of August.
I have been involved in swimming my whole life and have swam for teams in the Southeast, East and Northeast Region mainly as a butterfly swimmer. As a swimmer I achieved National Qualification.
I have been coaching now for nearly 10 years and during this time I have had many swimmers progress to Regionals and National. Most recently at my current team 8 swimmers achieved a top 10 placing in Level X.
I am a big believer in how land training can benefit a swimmer’s long term develop and often incorporate some elements in a swim session through AMRAPs or EMOMs.
Outside of swimming I have a strong interest in my own fitness training most days through CrossFit and I still like to get in and compete at open meets and championships alongside my swimmers.
