Intensive Training Center

"I am very proud to be the head coach of the new Intensive Training Center in Stockport. With the new staff, support and facilities, we can make the existing World Class program, supported by Stockport Sports Trust, even better. "I am very excited at the prospect of new swimmers being attracted to the Intensive Training Center which will be at the cutting edge of the sport. We will continue to produce young talent in our successful middle distance and distance programs and with the soon to be appointed sprint coach we will aim to be one of the best swim teams in the world. The addition of a full time sports scientist, physiotherapist, and strength and conditioning coach means we have the tools do deliver results at all levels."
