Dear Swimmers & Parents

Many of you will be aware of some on-going changes to the club's coaching arrangements and I now wish to provide you with an update on that situation.

Recruitment has recently taken place to fill some of the vacancies and there is some further recruitment of coaching staff still taking place. All coaching appointments are conducted by Glasgow Life and subject to their policies, procedures and the consequent amount of time it takes to formalise new staff in a large organisation. The club cannot influence this process and you will appreciate that it is not always possible to complete everything to ideal timescales.

Nevertheless, following the recent recruitment process I am delighted to announce that Coach Aaron Sievewright will soon be taking over as the new Lead Coach for the JD2 East Group. Aaron will also continue with his Junior Foundation group but in order to fulfil these duties he will be leaving his JD1 West post. One of our senior elite swimmers (Andrew McFadzean) has accepted an offer to become the new JD1 West coach and we anticipate him commencing in this role once the recruitment paperwork has been completed. Further, we are excited to confirm the appointment of Coach Ian Phillips as the new lead for Masters & Club squads. Ian has been assisting with various squads in the programme for sometime and this new role will be a great opportunity for him to formally become a squad lead coach for the first time. Both Aaron and Ian will start their new roles on 4th December, with Andrew following as soon as possible thereafter.

Earlier this week Grant Gould sadly informed us that he will no longer be able to carry on his role with JD1 East as he will begin a new full-time job in early January as a lifeguard. Grant was reluctant to leave this role but his new working hours mean it will not be possible to do both. We are hopeful that Grant will continue to assist with coaching at COGST in the future though in a voluntary capacity. Grant will continue to lead the group until 20th December when the squad breaks for Christmas and in the meantime the search for his successor and other coaches for vacant positions has already begun.

I hope you will join me in welcoming all the coaches to their new roles and giving them your continued support. Your understanding and cooperation in this matter is much appreciated.

Ian Wright
