Coach – Shirley Swan

Mention ‘swimming’ in the Swan Hill community, and you will most likely hear the name ‘Shirley Swan’.  Shirley was one of the founders of our swimming club in 1978 and is still very much involved in the club with a special love for coaching the swimmers.

While all swimmers have great respect for Shirley, she has a particular affinity with the younger swimmers helping them to develop their stroke techniques and foster their love of swimming.

Shirley has been a coach at the club since 1978 and holds a Silver Accreditation with Australia’s Swimming Coaching and Teaching Association.

Shirley recently received a prestigious award at the Australian Coaching and Swim Teachers Assocation conference last month, Shirley was finally presented with her 2020 Outstanding Contribution to Swim Coaching in Australia Award.
