When Tom's daughter was 5 she joined the local swimming club, he got involved and before he knew it was on the committee, a qualified swimming teaching and a licensed official for the Amateur Swimming Association. He has been heavily involved for 10 years now and enjoys every moment, he is currently the Head teacher for the Welwyn Garden Swimming Club and teaches 3 nights a week and officiates at galas at the weekends. He teaches children from the age of 5 up to and including late teens, some with learning difficulties and disabilities. More recently in the last 3 years he has also become involved with Synchronised Swimming. On top of the other coaching, he now teaches this once a week and helps the swimmers with figures and routines at Aqualina Synchronised swimming club. Again Tom is involved in the committee and has just completed a Synchronised swimming course.
