The Coach
Colin has always been an enthusiastic swimmer, who trained with Dawn Fraser as part of Harry Gallagher’s squad and is a former Branch record holder Masters 60+ in 400, 800, 1500 freestyle. So he’s got cred in the water!

A brief outline of Colin’s swimming and coaching career.
Swimming : Several Victorian Surf Swimming titles.
Member of Victorian SLSC team.
Trained with Dawn Fraser as part of Harry Gallagher’s squad.
Former state record holder Masters 60 + in 400, 800, 1500 freestyle 

Coaching : Frankston Swimming Club. Head swim coach for 15 years. Level 2 ASCA qualified.
Padua College. Swimming coach for 31 years: The school won 29 out 31 titles in that time including the last 28 in a row.

Current swim coach at Mt. Martha Lifesaving Club and have been for the past 5 years. Mainly mature swimmers in both open water and pool.

Coaching Philosophies: Improve technique. In older swimmers, improve efficiency.
Teach swimmers the principle of “ progressive overload” which allows them to develop their own programs when they haven’t got access to a coach.
Highlight use of mental approach in competitive swimming.

Colin also teaches people to play Bridge and other card games (something to keep in mind if there is a rainy day!) So he’s got cred in the water!
