All of the coaches are ex-competitive swimmers for either Worsley Swimming Club, Salford Swimming Club or both, and therefore can fully relate to the swimmers whilst putting their first-hand knowledge and expertise into practice. Our coaches are also DBS checked and attend regular courses to enhance their knowledge further, including safeguarding, equity and teaching children with disabilities. Read on to learn more about each of our coaches.
