Coaching Team

Integral to the running of Bridge of Don ASC is the relationship between the committee and our team of highly qualified and dedicated coaches. 

Each coach demonstrates a wide variety of skills working with our swimmers to help them maximise their potential and be the best they can be. We have a diverse team of coaches who have experience from working with Learn to Swim to coaching at International level.   Many of our coaches have competed nationally and enjoy sharing their experiences, passion and knowledge of the sport with their squads. 

There is a strong development journey for the coaches, many starting at 14 years old as poolside assistants and going on to gain their coaching qualifications whilst establishing a strong mentoring network with other coaches across Scotland.  The club has a strong team of coaches who not only help each other to ensure a high level of coaching across all squads but also focus on providing the best possible training environment for our swimmers. 

As well as developing our swimmers technically our coaches take great pride in their responsibility to help our swimmers to be well-rounded individuals both inside and outside of the pool.
