We are very pleased to announce our new Head Coach, Astrid Wharton.
Astrid has extensive experience in the swimming world and a real passion for swimming that we believe will be of great benefit to the club. She has previously worked at a number of swimming clubs, including Hackney, Newham and Camden Swiss Cottage. She also has a background in triathlon and open water swimming that we hope will also be very useful for the club.
Astrid will first join us at training at Harpenden Leisure Centre on Sunday 18th April, so we hope you will all be able to meet her from then onwards. We are currently working with Astrid to bring her up to speed on how we currently operate and agreeing a handover process with Annie, our current interim Head Coach. Annie will then step back into her old role as Assistant Head Coach.
Please join us in welcoming Astrid to Harpenden Swimming Club and in thanking Annie for stepping in as Head Coach over the last few months.
