Formby Swimming Club would like to wholeheartedly thank Alice for all her time and effort over the last 4 years. She has been a constant part of the club and helped a lot of the current young coaches along the way. Her coaching has been of the highest standard and we wish her all the best as she embarks on her nursing career.

Additional Coaching Resource for Formby Swimming Club.
We have recently secured the services of two very experienced swimming coaches to assist Head Coach Paul Cumberbatch. The new team, who have worked together in the past, have immediately increased the focus on technique and stamina building on the very solid foundations set by Paul and the team.
The club have a busy season of competitive gala's ahead and therefore look forward to reaping the results of this approach.
