It is our duty to announce that Ben Stanford has been presented with a career opportunity that will further his development as a Coach, and he felt like this was something that he could not pass up. Therefore, from August 2018, Ben will no longer be a Coach with Union Swimming.
Ben has worked with Union since Autumn 2017 and his final session will be Tuesday 31st July. In the 9 months or so that Ben has been with Union, he has really taken ownership of his groups and we have seen significant improvement in his swimmers. Feedback from Ben’s swimmers has been excellent and this is testament to the enthusiasm and innovation that he brings to each session he gives, along with sound technical knowledge.
Ben has sought to further his own coaching ability through learning from his peers and investing time in high level coaching courses. The impact of this is clearly visible in his sessions. Not only that but Ben is incredibly likeable, professional and has been a pleasure to work alongside at Union.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ben for his involvement in Union and being a great asset to the Team. We wish him all the best for the future, and I am sure there are big things on the horizon. We, and all the swimmers I am sure, will miss you greatly. Don’t be a stranger to Union and you know where we are if you are missing Masters too much! Good luck!
