Our Coaches

Doug Kerr Head Coach

For as long as I can remember, swimming has been a part of my life. I started swimming competitively from the age of nine, and progressed through the years, ending up competing at Regional and National level competitions. When I knew that I would not be able to maintain the hours of training required to compete at the level I wanted to I transitioned into a coaching role, and have remained on the side of the pool ever since!

During my twelve years as Head Coach I have overseen swimmers competing at all levels of competition from Club Champs to National qualifiers, and some have progressed on to be the big and bright stars of the swimming world. My aim for the swimmers at Biggleswade is to be the best they can be, and to realise, and fulfill, their potential. Every swimmer has a dream to be the best they can be and it is my job to help them get there.

Olivia Lillywhite Green Coach

I have been a competitive swimmer with the Club for 14 years as well as a Coach for 10 of them.

I am a Level 2 Swimming Teacher, Level 2 Coach and hold a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Excercise Science.

My role is primarily to prepare the younger swimmers in Green Squad by fine-tuning their technique and readying them for competing.  I also coach all other squads and swim when I can.  

Kirsty Gooch Green Link Coach

I have swum competitively since I was eight years old and have been with Biggleswade since 2012.

I am a level 2 Swimming Teacher and a Level 2 Coach. I have coached for the club for eight years and enjoy it very much. 

I mainly coach our newest swimmers working on their transition from AquaEd to competing, but also work with all other squads.

I still compete when I can.
