How long have you been coaching with the club?
I started coaching around 3 years ago
What’s your favourite thing about coaching?
My favourite thing about coaching, is having a good rapport with the swimmers.
Why did you start coaching?
I started coaching because both my daughters swim competitively, so rather than sitting watching I thought I’d help out.
I started as a poolside helper later gaining my qualifications as a swim teacher then as a coach.
What’s your sporting background?
I don’t really have a sporting background, although I was on all the sports teams at school. I do enjoy walking and badminton.
What’s your favourite stroke?
What’s your favourite Drill?
I know it’s a strange one but Sculling, getting a feel for the water is so important.
