Thank you Jason, for an enjoyable return to the water for me after many months away. I’m an avid cyclist so the water is not my first port of call, unlike my darling fish Johanna, but it was good to be part of a structured session, with such a helpful group of people and a lovely atmosphere, as much as it was hard work! I’ll definitely be back to learn how to do the drills properly and to improve my overall stroke and pace.

Jason is one of the only fully qualified Open Water Specialist coaches for both the ASA & STA in the SW region, and is also one of only 38 Swim Smooth Certified coaches in the world. Alongside this Jason is also Lead Open Water Coach for a leading local swimming club, writes / has written for Speedo UK and other publications, is a qualified STA Open Water Tutor and sits on the Wiltshire Open Water committee as Open water coach and advisor, as well as regional involvement and other positions to drive the sport of open water swimming forward.
