I have been involved in Teaching and Coaching since the early 1990’s mainly with three clubs in Scotland. . I was lucky enough to work with several British Champions at Age-Group level as squad coach and very lucky to coach an age-group Scottish Champion in 100m Butterfly. On moving to England I took a break from Swimming until my Grandson joined Middlesbrough ASC just over a year ago.

My role is simple: to convince each swimmer they can swim faster than they have ever done before, which for all the squad begins in training and I would like to commend the squad for the effort they show in Training. Our motto in the squad is Train soft race soft, train hard race hard.

As for the future, my hopes are that more of the squad will break 30 seconds for 50m Freestyle in addition to breaking the minute for 100m Freestyle, with hard work and improved awareness of training times I think we will be successful as a squad in achieving our goals.
