Dear members of Clevedon asc, as part of the CoB network oif swim clubs the email below confirms the apoointment of Lisa Atkinson as the new head coach at City of Bristol.  She is currently at Mawell Swimming Club and there website provides a little more information relating to her background and approach.     

To all our Members,

Selection of Matt Puddy’s replacement is now complete, after twenty five coach’s Worldwide applied for the vacancy, a challenging selection process saw the original candidates reduced to three excellent coaches. The final phase of the process took place over the 8 and 9th March, it involved a one and half hour pool session and forty minutes formal presentation including a question and answer session. One candidate shone through the process and after a small discussion the selection panel have chosen our new Head Coach.

Lisa Atkinson, currently the Head Coach of Maxwell SC showed to have the drive, enthusiasm and passion to take CoB to become one of the top Clubs Nationally. Lisa has a proven coaching pedigree with Maxwell SC and has experience in Strength and Conditioning a major part of her CV.

It is proposed she will start with CoB on Wednesday 9th May after the Regional Championships as she wished to take her current swimmers through this competition before leaving Maxwell. It is planned that she will attend a Parent Meeting sometime in April, date to be confirmed. You may also see her visiting the Club as she gets to know the Club before her start date

I'm sure you're all very eager to meet Lisa and will no doubt make her feel very welcome her at CoB. 

Kind regards,

The Committee
