Heidi LOVELAND
I have been involved in swimming and numerous other sports up to county level all my life. I joined Otters when I was probably about nine years old and am currently swimming for the club as a Masters swimmer.
I first started coaching and leading sports when I was at school. I won various sports coaching awards, was picked to lead the youth team at a Youth Sports Trust Conference, elected Sports Ambassador to represent my School and in swimming was selected to go to a Young Coaches Talent Camp run by the Youth Sports Trust.
I started coaching for Otters in 2011, when I finished my A-levels, and have been coaching ever since.  Whilst I was at Warwick University I rowed (and swam if I capsized) but still continued to coach Otters in my holidays.
I am now a full time secondary school teacher in the day however I still love coaching Otters in my spare time and am lucky enough to be the Lead Coach for Otters Squad and coach some of our club squads too. I also  organise the swimming team at the school I work at.  Whilst I want every swimmer to succeed and do their absolute best, my main goal is that every swimmer who joins Otters loves to swim and enjoys it. I try my best to make sessions creative and fun for all  whilst not forgetting that we want to be striving towards getting  PBs which takes hard work!
My  favourite quote (which one of my swimming coaches said to me) is to think: ‘I SHALL, I WILL , I CAN’ and that helps me to keep going and try my best. If your reading this because you are thinking of joining the club as a swimmer, coach, poolside helper or  even doing your  DofE award - do it - give it a go!!
