CITY of Chester Swimming Club has welcomed its new head coach.
Mike Richards Price, who brings a wealth of experience to the role, said: “We have very good coaching and teaching staff at City of Chester Swimming Club and we will deliver the best training programme possible and also help all the swimmers to achieve their goals.
“We are currently developing our coaching plan and identifying which gala events to attend over the next 12 months.”
Mike, from North Wales, has coached swimmers who have won medals at the National Age Group Championships and who have competed at British Championships and Olympic Trials.
More recently he has been part of the Welsh regional, disability and schools coaching teams.
There are 70 squad swimmers at the Chester club and nearly 800 in its ‘Learn to Swim’ programme.
Mike added: “One of my aims is to produce the best out of all the swimmers in all the five squads and to develop the children in the ‘Learn the Swim’, who will be serious contenders for places in the swimming squads.”
