Ben David

Ben David is at the beginning of his coaching journey and is very much still involved in competitive pool and open water swimming. Having had the pleasure of coaching Ben over the past 10 years I can honestly say is one in a million. He is the type of athlete that some coaches may never have the pleasure of working with.

Ben is currently working his way through his teaching and coaching qualifications all while studying and training.

Ben’s love of swimming started from the young age of 10 and for the past number of years he has given his time unselfishly to learn what he can about the coaching profession. He was worked with the younger squads within the club setting and has an excellent eye for correcting technical faults. Ben has always been a great role model for all younger team members and a someone they can look up to with ease. He holds a strong rapport with the younger swimmers, and we are thrilled that he has found the time to join our team.

Ben continues to train as a competitive senior swimmer. His adaptable, resilient nature has seen this take to the open water over the past year and a half and continue his training to the best of his ability. His attitude to hard work, dedication to his training has been unfaltering.
