First, I’d like to introduce myself.
As some of you know, I have been at Littlehampton Swimming Club since 1999, the last six years as their Head Coach. I stood down recently so I could go back to nursing, however I very soon realised that this was no longer for me, having been out for over 15 years, and found I really missed coaching swimming. I have been looking for another coaching role and was delighted when I heard that Bognor was looking for a coach, so here I am!
I am an ASA Level 3 Coach and a Level 2 teacher. I have been involved in both county and regional training and have taken several swimmers to national level. This year I had two swimmers at the British Championships and five at the ASA Nationals. One made two finals at the British Championships, four made finals at the ASA Nationals and one achieved a Gold Medal in the 200m breaststroke. Two of these swimmers are on the Regional Beacon Programme at Portsmouth and one young S6 swimmer is on the British Para-Swimming Talent Programme.
