Level 2 Coach
I was first invited into the club at a recreational session when I was 10. I was coaching the youth and competing in the Nationals by the time I was 14 and fully qualified BTF coach level 1 at 18yrs.
Due to work commitments and niggly injuries I had to stop but went to the Men’s finals at the London Olympics in 2012 and just wanted to get back on! 3 years on and I have decided although I don’t want to wear a leotard any more I do still want to be involved in the club that gave me so much.
