Announcing Two New Certified Swim Smooth Coaches In Cardiff And Perth

Today Swim Smooth are very proud to announce two new Swim Smooth Certified Coaches:

Andy Lane, Cardiff, Wales:

Andy coaches athletes across the complete spectrum of race distances and ability levels. Based in Cardiff, South Wales, Andy coaches individuals and currently works with a talented squad of triathletes comprised of age group champions and international athletes. He is an enthusiastic and passionate coach who prides himself on creating an environment in which the athletes strive to achieve their goals, learn from their experiences and enjoy their swimming.

In 2012 Andy won the prestigious British Psychological Society Division for Sport and Exercise Psychology Outstanding Thesis of the Year, demonstrating his commitment and dedication to achieving excellence in his PhD. This diligence carries through in his squad coaching and video analysis and stroke development sessions. Whether you're looking to improve your confidence in swimming, tune up your stroke or improve your performance, he can help.

Sally Scaffidi, Perth, Australia:,

Sally has had multiple successes over numerous distances of triathlon, adventure racing, open water swimming and paddling events and is very understanding of your needs as an athlete. She's passionate about coaching and is heavily involved with coaching the Swim Smooth Squads in Perth. In addition she conducts video analysis and stroke correction sessions from the Claremont Pool. She's currently training for her first 20km solo channel crossing from Perth to Rottnest Island in 2014.

Swim Smooth Coaches

As with all Certified Swim Smooth coaches, Sally and Andy were hand picked from hundreds of applicants to our Three Day Coach Education Course. They have been highly trained by Paul Newsome, Adam Young and the rest of the SS home-base team to deliver all of our coaching methods directly to you in person.

We're sorry if we don't have a coach near you yet. Growing the number of Swim Smooth coaches around the world is a major goal for us as a company because we know the value of high quality face to face coaching. Please bear with us while we develop this network over the coming years, carefully selecting and training coaches is critical to maintain the very highest standards of swim coaching and is not something that can be rushed.

Becoming A Swim Smooth Coach

If you are interested in becoming a Swim Smooth coach, a good first step is to join our Coaches Network here. We use the network to invite coaches to join us on our Three Day Coach Education Course which we operate several times a year in different locations. From the course we select the candidates with the coaching talent and passion to go on and train with Swim Smooth to become certified by us, which takes around a year.

Don't wait for Swim Smooth to come knocking on your door, get out there and start contributing to your local swimming and triathlon community to develop your skills and build your experience. You might also like to contribute on our forum too. Being proactive and passionate about coaching are key attributes we are looking for and make you much more likely to be selected.

Swim Smooth!
