Coach (Level 2 Teacher, Assistant (Level 1) Coach)

I grew up in Plymouth and was a Devon county level swimmer as a young person. I qualified as a Swimming (Level 2) Teacher in 1991, and taught at Dinnaton Swimming Club in Ivybridge, Devon for a few years. I let swimming and teaching/coaching lapse for a fair few years, but when my son joined Wells SC, it gave me the opportunity to get back on poolside (and in the pool on occasion with the Masters). I am now also qualified as an Assistant (Level 1) Coach.

I swam from an early age until my teens for Richmond-upon-Thames Swimming Club including at both Middlesex and Surrey Counties.  When my son started swimming for Wells SC in 2014 it was also a great opportunity for me to join Masters.  I have since qualified as an Assistant (Level 1) Coach and a Team Manager and I was a skills coach on the Somerset ASA County Development Programme for 11 year old in 2019.  I love seeing the progression within the squads and sharing the swimmers excitement when they compete.
