What have been some of your career highlights?
Getting to the heights I did with international competition as an athlete. With my coaching, I’ve tried a range of different types. I was Denis Cotterell’s assistant for three years – and this is a high-performance program, so you have to be a hard-ass coach. I found with kids it feels like you’ve got to be headmaster every day of the week, so I switched to adults. When an adult turns up to squad training, it’s because they want to be there. I found with adults you can go in-depth with your analysis and stroke correction. I’ve now been an adult swim coach since 1984. When I moved to the Coast in 1989, I was the Miami Masters Coach for 25 years. I’ve been the Queensland State Director of Coaching – teaching people to become coaches – and I also sat on the National Board for Masters Coaching to review training methods.
