I started swimming when I was 11, training with the Guinness Swimming & Water Polo Club in Dublin. I have experience of open water, water polo and racing and progressed through all the age groups reaching national level in racing and water polo. After moving to this area in 2012, my son expressed a wish to join a swimming club and once he joined Sudbury Storms, I was asked if I would like to help out. This then lead to me taking and completing my ASA Level 1 Coaching Award. At the end of 2017, I took and passed my ASA/Swim England Level 2 Coaching course.
The Club is building up a good network of coaches and parent volunteers and is going from strength to strength. As the saying goes, 'a club is only as good as its members', so if any parents can give their time and support, no matter how small, it is always gratefully received!
