Junior Squad

Junior Squad Coach: Georgina Ring
I was a competitive swimmers until I was 16 with Seabyrds SC and reached County level swimming. I won the 1500m Freestyle Gold at Counties at age 13 years old.

I have been a teacher for 4 years, working with kids of all abilities, ranging from toddles who have never been in the water before to teenagers who are preparing to enter a club situation, but I have not transitioned over to coaching for the last 6 Months.

Junior Squad is my first squad as a coach and I am excited to work with them developing their competitive skills and seeing their progress over the future.
