Rob Borland

As every parent of a swimmer knows you find yourself with plenty of spare time at swimming pools. Not being one for sitting around Rob decided to get involved. Initially he helped out as a poolside helper, which he really enjoyed and after a few months, progressed to ASA Level 1 Coach.

Every swimmer has different goals and recognising this and helping them achieve those goals is why he enjoys coaching.

Outside of the pool he enjoys all sports and is a qualified coach in Rugby and a Level 2 qualified referee.

“The club always needs volunteers. The step across to the poolside can be daunting at first but it is massively rewarding and I would encourage anyone who has an interest to give it a go.”
