Foundation 1 Coach: Mike Rimmer

Michael has been teaching and coaching at BWSC for over 6 years and joined as one of our enthusiastic parents, he quickly got involved on poolside and gained experience of coaching and qualified as a Level 2 Teacher of Aquatics, he has a good understanding of what it takes to be a performance swimmer through his own children who both swim for the club.

Michael’s swimmers all progress through our Swim Academy and start their first stages of competitive swimming with him, most of Michael’s swimmers are aged 10-12 years of age. Michael is very sensitive to his swimmers whom many have other activities outside of swimming and he has swimmers in his squad who also are great runners, footballers and enjoy a varied range of sports which all compliment swimming.

Michael’s emphasis is on making sure his swimmers enjoy their swimming, have a good grasp of the technical aspects of each stroke and also compete at our own club championships and level 3 meets.
