Master Coach: Jim Dobinson

Masters swimming has long been established within the area of Bracknell, initially under the auspicious of Bracknell Masters and more recently as Bracknell & Wokingham Masters.

A sound Masters Swim programme based at a good location with professionally structured training has been established as the basis for long term commitment. This encourages our Masters to achieve the levels of fitness and technical aspects of all strokes and turns needed to reach and stay at competitive levels.

Jim Dobinson, an A.S.A. Coach who has also achieved the A.S.A. Masters Module organises the training programme. Jim has been involved in Masters Coaching for over 50 years and has coached Masters Swimmers and Triathletes from club and country levels and many have achieved high levels of success at National, European and World Champion standards.

The general aims of the Masters training programme

The general aims are to ensure that all personal targets of fitness can be achieved. We work progressively to enable our master swimmers to compete at Open and County Meets and through to elite competitions at National, European and World Championship levels. The masters program also caters for Triathletes or similar sports persons who want to achieve higher technical and performance standards in their swimming.

Jim encourages the Masters swimmers to ask for advice and guidance to improve their strokes or add additional strokes to their swimming repertoire. As training is a two way relationship, Jim also encourages swimmers to discuss ways to improve training, and suggestions in sessions are always welcomed. As part of the Masters Coach commitment, Jim will aim to provide support at the various competitions that occur on the Masters Event Calendar.

Bracknell and Wokingham SC would like to welcome any Masters swimmers to come and join their sessions. You will be assured a friendly and positive response. This in turn can develop into long-term camaraderie and friendship. It is not all work and no play; there are times during the year when we meet socially to unwind from the stresses of life and training. New ideas are always welcomed.
