Mike (Head Coach) (Lead performance 2 Coach)
James (Assistant Head Coach) (Lead Age group development 2 Coach)
I started to swim with Pioneer 79 in 1996 at the age of 3. I progressed through the club quickly and found myself competing at the Club Championships in 2001 at age 8. At the age of 12 I qualified for my first Lancashire County Championships and went on to be the Men's Club Captain. At this time the club made an historic achievement in qualifying for the A final of the North West Premier Division of the National Swimming League. I retired from competitive swimming in 2014 to focus on my University Degree and my Teaching and Coaching at Pioneer. I have coached several groups at Pioneer and now look after the next generation of Pioneer swimmers, many of whom have qualified for County and Regional Championships. At the start of 2015/16 season I was appointed in my current role of Assistant Head Coach and look forward in the coming years to giving back to the sport that gave me so much.
