I cater for beginners, starting their swimming career to any one wanting to improve their strokes for fitness or competition.
I also specialise in open water coaching with a special interest in English Channel,Marathon swims and Triathlon swim training.

As a qualified ASA Swimming Club Coach and Teacher I am able to provide coaching and a comprehensive training programme to suit your needs. In March 2013 I attended a three day Swim Smooth for Coaches course in Loughborough and have further studied and used these up to date swim techniques. Summer of 2014 I passed the new ASA Open water swimming coach certificate.
