Listing her greatest personal swimming achievements as competing in the National Championships and in the Queensland State Championships, Kate brings a wealth of fantastic experience to her teaching role as an accredited ASCTA swimming teacher. Also enjoying competing in local open water events, Kate is clearly happier in the water than out of it! Having small class sizes and the support and encouragement of a teacher within the water alongside each student is one of the most valuable aspects of each lesson for Kate. She is able to establish a safe and welcoming environment that allows her to closely assist each student as they develop new skills and correct their technique as quickly and as often as is needed as they progress with each stroke. Likewise this enables Kate to deliver tailored lessons that focus on each student’s individual requirements, allowing their skills to be continually and confidently developed. Having the opportunity in each lesson to pass on her expertise and encourage the same confident and enthusiastic relationship with swimming is what makes every day exciting!
