New Assistant Coach Announced

Here is the news you have been waiting for. Introducing Cameron Gledhill as Abbotsleigh Assistant Coach. Cameron will commence his role on Monday 11th July.

Cameron started coaching in 2011 and is a Silver license coach since 2011. He has coached in both the USA and Australia, at all levels from development level up to the Australian team coaching staff. He started swimming in Canberra in 1998, top 10 at age Nationals in 100, 200 breast and 200 IM, moved to the USA and swam for Curl Burke Swim Club. Cameron won State Championships in 100 breast and 200 free, was awarded a scholarship to Virginia Tech University, achieved a bronze medal at US National Championships in the 50 breast and was named 4 time all American. Cameron will move from Canberra to join us.

Coaches that Cam had whilst he was a swimmer had some of the most profound influences on who he is today. He believes that coaching, although results and performance based, has an even more important role in the development of better people. Assisting athletes through their development, allowing them the opportunity to set goals, learn about work ethic, he believes, is one of the most fulfilling things anyone can do.

Cameron has a keen interest in everything rugby. He has spent the last few years in the army and has probably fired more rocket launchers than your average person.

We look forward to seeing Cameron on pool deck on 11th July!
