Look below to find out a bit more about them.......


I've been involved in swimming since the early years of my life. I joined my local club in my native Poland at the age of eight and progressed all the way through to National level. For the last 12 years I have been working as a swimming coach and Head Coach for various swimming school and clubs around London. I strive to get the very best out of every swimmer by building a partnership between coach and swimmer, as well as providing a training program that is challenging, varied and progressive. 



I've been a part of the EDSC community for a long time now, having started swimming with the club when I was 8 years old. Throughout my swimming career, I had the opportunity to attend national meets every year from 2016 until 2021. One of my proudest moments was when I achieved 3 qualifying times for the Toyko Olympic Trials. 

My coaching career began with EDSC Seahorses 5 years ago. I am Level 2 qualified as both a Coach and a Teacher. Recently I have taken over as the County Squad Coach. I am enjoying the additional responsibilities and demands that come with coaching a slightly older group of children.     



Gregs’ age-group swimming career included National Individual and League performances for his club. Greg says ‘those days define me still, today’ After swimming Greg took up an IT and Project Management professional career which he says peaked in 2012 when asked to manage the IT services at one of the Venues for the London Olympic Games. Greg started a return to our Sport in 2010 and has since qualified as Senior Coach (Level 3) and Teacher (Level 2). Greg also coaches at County, Regional & National skill/development camps. Greg also swam as a Master and on one occasion, achieved a European relay record with some of his swim buddies. Greg’s personal philosophy is to Try, or to Strive and his favourite quote is possibly ‘The greatest failure of all is the failure to try’ (William A Ward). Greg’s coaching philosophy is to guide people to be the best they can and to enjoy the journey.


Andy has recently returned to Epsom District Swimming Club as it was the starting point for his swimming and then coaching career. Having previously coached for EDSC between 2010-13, he went on to complete his Level 3 Coaching qualification and moved to Guildford City Swimming Club. Andy continued to coach numerous County, Regional and National medallists whilst at Guildford City Swimming Club. Since 2017, he has been applying his coaching skills to a primary school in Chelsea as the Head of Sport.

In Andy’s personal life, he enjoys swimming for fitness having reached County and South East standards in his own swimming career. Before making the switch to competing in Open Water and Triathlon events, qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii (October 2013/ 2014) as well as achieving a Sub 3hr Marathon PB in the London Marathon (April 2014/ 2015).



I have been a member of EDSC competitive squads for 7 years and currently swim in the Performance squad. I qualified as an assistant coach ( Level 1) 2 years ago and have enjoyed coaching A1 and A2. I am looking forward to taking my level 2  coach qualification as soon as I’m 18. I currently have offers to study Sports Science at Loughborough and Birmingham Universities,  from the Autumn. I look forward to brining this knowledge back to EDSC.  to help all the swimmers perform.
