Greg Ient – Head Coach (Moors Swim Squad Chairman)

“I started my career in swimming at another North Yorkshire based club, Thirsk White Horse Swim Team (THWST), where I trained under some very dedicated and quality coaches that took me to Yorkshires, NER’s and Nationals by the age of 15. THWST did me great favours in the sport and introduced me to my passion of swimming. THWST were a dominant force to be reckoned with especially in league and county based competitions which regularly saw medals and podium finishes.

Glen Ient – Assistant Head Coach

Graham Lane  – Seniors Coach (Club President)
I joined the coaching staff in 1997, originally as Poolside Helper and have probably volunteered for every job going over the years including Head Coach and Chairman. All 3 of my children have been very active members and we have enjoyed the training, competition and family involvement this very friendly club provides. In my semi-retirement I now hold the positions of Club President and Seniors Coach (not Senior Coach!)

Sam Davison – Junior Otters Coach (Club Chairman)

“I have swimming coursing through my veins, growing up right on the coast at Spurn Head one the bleakest parts of the UK the sea became my second home. I was late taking to sport but with the inspiration and help of some great people. I became a junior triathlete at 16, enjoying hockey and rugby as a teenager until kayaking and climbing took over.

Karen Ient – Junior Squad Coach

For the last 15 years I have breathed swimming through my 2 boys Greg and Glen who both went onto compete at high levels in a multitude of sports especially swimming.

I was involved with the swimming club as a poolside helper generally chaperoning and supporting children at swimming galas while I was working for Barclays Bank and Kirkby Fleetham school.

I recently had a change in direction with work and completed my swim teachers course. This secured me employment  with Hambleton District Council  as a schools swimming teacher.

I now assist Greg on poolside Friday and Sunday evenings.
