How long have you been coaching with the club? 

1 year

What’s your favourite thing about coaching? 

Seeing an improvement when giving tips on technique and seeing kids smile when they improve.

Why did you start coaching? 

I wanted to pass on my knowledge and experience - plus generations of my family have coached at swimming clubs. I want to continue the tradition

I swam for Radcliffe Swimming Club as a child where we won Manchester and District Junior League for 3 years in a row. I also swam at Student Nationals when Ponds Forge opened in 1991. I have also competed nationally in Lifesaving. I used to be a goalie in Waterpolo. I now compete as a masters swimmer for Vulcans and Lincolnshire.

What’s your favourite stroke? 

NOT backstroke. I won national bronze for 200m breast so I guess it should be breaststroke 

What’s your favourite Drill?

Biondi drill - gets the timing right for ‘fly
