The committee are very pleased to announce we have appointed Daf Bourchier as Head Coach for Buxton Swimming Club to succeed Hugh Dokter who leaves at the end of February.
Daf is a very experienced Level 3 Coach and joins us after 2 years as Head Coach at Ashbourne. Her previous roles have included Coaching at Dove Valley ASC (where she was also Head Coach) Coaching at Leek ASC, as well as setting up and coordinating Learn to Swim programmes at Dove Valley, Leek and Ashbourne. She has also been a mentor for all poolside staff for many years helping clubs develop from within.
This appointment we feel will help Buxton now continue the energy and positive development that Hugh brought to the club and put us on a very stable footing for the future.
Daf will start with the club on the 16th February so she can shadow Hugh in his last few weeks with us and then take over fully from the 1stMarch. Can everyone, swimmers, teachers and coaches alike please help Daf settle in and give her everything she needs to help shape your future swimming development.
