Over the past several weeks we have followed a comprehensive process to search for and appoint a new Assistant Head Coach. There was strong competition for the role but I am now delighted to be able to confirm that our own Sophie Elgar has been appointed to the vacant position.
Sophie has been a member of Maxwell SC for many years both as a top level swimmer and a much respected and highly successful coach. She will head up County A and County B squads, co-head up the Regional Squad with Noel, and work closely with him to ensure the very best possible coaching provision across all our squads. Please join with me and congratulate Sophie on her appointment.
As a part of the coaching reshuffle following Marc's departure, I am also pleased to let you know that another "home grown" and hugely talented Maxwell swimmer and coach will be stepping up into a bigger role. Dani Richards will now take on the responsibility for being Lead Coach with the Platinum and Junior Development squads. Congratulations Dani.
Ally Brewer and Bill Elgar will remain Lead Academy Coach and Lead Buckingham Coach respectively. All other coaching roles remain unchanged.
Further details will be announced in due course, and please understand that the coaches will be moving into their new roles over the course of the coming month as they complete their current responsibilities elsewhere.
Head Coach Noel Horton said, "I am delighted that Sophie and Dani have taken on bigger roles, making an already outstanding coaching team, even better! We are full of ideas and enthusiasm, and I am very excited for the future"
