Top level swimming coaching for Canford School

Canford is delighted to announce that from January 2018, Swim Bournemouth will be working in association with the school to deliver its junior and senior swim programmes.

Swim Bournemouth is already linked to the school as it uses the Canford sports centre as its training base for club members.  Formed in 2010 through a merger between Bournemouth Dolphins and Ferndown Otters, the club competes in local, district, national and international competition in age group, senior competitive and masters swimming and has achieved recognition as a prominent source of instruction, training, and competitive support to people of all ages, abilities and levels of ambition.  It has seen National recognition in age group and senior top 8 rankings, with swimmers continuing on to represent Great Britain in both Junior and Senior Internationals and medals at major events such as World Championships, Olympics, Commonwealth Games, and European Championships.

Mark Burley, Canford School, Director of Sport, commented:

“I am delighted that Swim Bournemouth will be providing expert coaching to our swimmers from next term.   Swimming is increasing in popularity among both juniors and seniors at Canford, and with a full programme of galas planned this season we are looking forward to benefiting from this additional expertise and support for our swimming programme.”

Matt Heathcock, Head Coach at Swim Bournemouth, is equally enthusiastic about the new venture:

“Canford School has first class swimming facilities and it is great to see such enthusiasm and support for the sport among both pupils and staff.  We already have a number of Canford swimmers who are members of the club and train regularly with us.  My team and I are looking forward to extending this to work with Canford swimmers from across the year groups to help them develop their potential to the highest possible levels and their enjoyment of the sport.
