Unfortunately due to a new job and the commitments that come with it, the difficult decision has been made to step down as Head Coach as of Sunday 30th June 2019.

It has been a fun filled and full on 9 months since taking over in September 2018 for my second stint as Head Coach for Wigan Swimming Club (WASPS), even in this short time it’s been great to see all the swimmers make massive improvements with their strokes, turns and times at galas.
Since doing my swimming teaching and coaching qualifications 17 years ago as a member of Wigan Swimming Club, I have had the pleasure of being involved in teaching and coaching swimming within the Wigan Borough and the Middle East over those 17 years. It is now time to branch out into a new career as a Sports Therapist for which I hold a Masters Degree and the whole reason I came back to my home town after leaving the Middle East in August 2017.

Michelle Nickson will take over as Head Coach as of Monday 1st July 2019. You’ll be able to contact her by using the headcoach@wiganswimmingclub.org.uk email address.

You will still see me on poolside coaching, but only on Mondays. I will also still be running the Open Water Swimming Sessions on selected Saturdays (please see the original post for more details).


Yours in Swimming
