Pre-Development

Pre-Development Coach: Adrian Keast

Pre-Development Squad training sessions are about enjoying competitive swimming. The Squad focuses on fundamental technique & skills across all four strokes and introduces young swimmers to challenging training sets. Swimmers’ ages average 9 to 10 years old and training is based around competing in the 200 IM.

Adrian is Level 2 qualified and has been Coaching & Teaching swimming for over 6 years, having been inspired by his two sons who both swim for the club. He is also a qualified football coach.

He has a range of coaching experience having coached many of the different squads at BWSC as well as teaching Academy and private swim school swimmers.

Adrian constantly looks to improve a swimmer’s technique through ongoing stroke analysis in his sessions. He places great emphasis on feedback and identifying the best way for a swimmer to learn.

Pre Development squad swimmers are expected to broaden the variety of their competition events and see swimming as one of their top competitive sports.
