With over 25 year’s experience in the swimming industry from introductory level Instruction to Learn to swim Development Officer posts then progressing to owning and managing programs for 15 years delivering to children of all ages at grass roots level. In addition I have also been involved at the other end of the spectrum training elite level swimmers, the culmination being 3 Butterfly swimmers at the Olympic trials in 2000 to Sheffield. Other significant achievement at elite level include having swimmers representing Great Britain and winning scholarships to prestigious universities.
I have have also translated my depth of knowledge to expand on my wide range of qualifications and experience in the Aquatic Industry. This includes lecturing in Swim Teaching, Water Safety Management, First aid, Automated External Defibrillator, Pool Lifeguard and now also run a very successful Open Water Swim Event Series.
While I have reached the highest level of coaching I am now exploring and expanding my knowledge by the alternative swim coaching methods – Total Immersion. When you open your mind up to the alternative approaches available with progressive kaizen learning you experience a fundamental shift in your thinking on how we should approach the skillful art/science of swimming technique leading you to challenge your creative thinking and pushing boundaries of current methodologies in swimming. Being introduced to Total Immersion Swimming did this for me. Total Immersion is a proactive well thought out principle and applied approach to swimming which made perfect sense to me both mechanically and psychologically giving the missing links in my understanding of swimming in today’s market. I have greatly enjoyed Total Immersion both on a personal level by applying it to my own swimming but also passing this knowledge on to other who are keen to improve themselves.
