Led by international swimming coach Paul Remmonds, the Coaching Team will guide swimmers through skills, drills and practices that have helped to produce a World Champion, 3 Olympians, European and Commonwealth finalists.
"I am 20 and am originally from the Wirral. I am currently starting my second year at the University of Derby and study a BA (Honours) in Sport Management.
I was first introduced to swimming at a young age through my local swimming club at the age of 8 and went on swim for Wirral Metro under Paul.
I've won age group titles at Cheshire and Regional level in breaststroke and freestyle and have also been a national age group finalist.
After my untimely retirement from swimming I was selected to be part of the National Young Coaches Academy in which Paul supported and mentored me through.
I have gained both teaching and coaching qualifications within the sport of swimming and was proud to coach Wirral Metro's age group development squad for 18 months prior to going to university.
I am looking forward to working with Paul and Skills4Podium to help the swimmers reach their full potential."
