Head Coach Update

The club committee are getting on with the task of recruiting a new head coach and this is an update of our progress so far. An advert has been placed with Swimming Times – respected journal – both on line and in the printed publication for a new head coach with a closing date of 30th November. We will then choose a number of candidates for interview during December with a decision hopefully being made before Christmas. Depending on notice period we anticipate a new coach being in place by end of January 2013, but this is very much dependant on the existing commitments of the chosen individual. Until a new head coach is in place we will be using experienced level 3 coaches to cover ALL sessions currently taken by Eric and assure all affected swimmers and parents, of the club’s commitment to provide the highest level of coaching and support. Any temporary coaches will continue with Eric’s programme to ensure the swimmers continue to progress towards upcoming competitions.

We would like to assure all C, B and B1 squad swimmers, as well as those in learn to swim, that, during this interim period, Dave Currie will continue to offer the same level of coaching and teaching and will only take on additional coaching duties if they do not interfere with his current commitments.
