Our New Junior Coach EMILY MOSS 

At the beginning of this year Emily joined our coaching team and she is the lead coach for our JD1 squad. 

“I swam at Chalfont Otters from the age of 8 to 18 and have previously coached at the Club. I started as a Poolside Assistant at the age of 14 and went on to gain my Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications. I coached at Otters until I went off to university in 2015 to take a degree in Primary Education. I am now a teacher at a local primary school.” said Emily. (Picture attached).
