New Coach

Dear Swimmers/Parents,

My name is Matt and I am very excited to be joining Staines Swimming Club as Junior Coach and Gala Coordinator from the 31st August 2014.

Currently I work teaching and coaching swimming at different venues across Hillingdon. Since the age of 9 I have been a competitive member of Hillingdon Swimming Club, and have competed at a County, Regional and National level as well as training with and representing the University of Portsmouth while studying.

I am looking forward to start the new season with you all and working together to fulfill your goals. As Michael Phelps said "I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it, and put the work and time into it".

So this season I want each of you to be the best you can be. We will be working on a diverse programme including stroke techniques, starts and finishes, and underwater work helping you achieve your full potential.

Enjoy the rest of the summer, I look forward to seeing you on the 31st August.

We have three venues now where we offer Learn 2 Swim programmes. We need help spreading the news and encouraging children to learn to swim.

Thank you in advance.

Bishopsgate School Pool

The fantatsic new swimming pool at Bishopsgate school is now open and being used by different groups across the club. We have also launched a weekend learn to swim programme which is proving to be very popular already.

Main Pool New Swimmer Assessment

We regularly hold assessments for swimmers wishing to join the club. Assessments are held on a regular basis at Spelthorne Leisure Centre. Please email or phone 07757 896565 with the swimmer’s name, date of birth and two telephone numbers. Evenings are not the best time to call, as coaches are busy at training sessions.
