New open water swimming qualification - 11 May 2013
Hi I have been working for NOWCA and have been part of writing the new open water and pool to open water qualifications. These are the first anywhere to go onto the national framework. NOWCA's partners in this are the STA who are a governing body for swimming. We ran the first courses last weekend and in the next few years all open water swimming coaches will want to be on these courses. You could be taught by a coach who has been on this course. Open water swimming is growing and I am proud to be part of it. For more information go onto www.nowca.org

NOWCA Thorpe Swimming Lakes Opens 17th April - 07 February 2011

On the 17th April 2011 we will open a new open water swimming lake. Thorpe Park is very well known in the South East and probably further affield than that. Thorpe Lake is adjacent to Thorpe Park and only 5 minutes from J11 M25

It is a fantastically beautiful lake run by JBSki. NOWCA will set up their headquarters at the lake and run regualar open water swimming sessions as well as swim and swim/run events. There will be an onsite shop for all wetsuit sales. In short we can't wait! Tell everyone. If you go online to www.nowca.org you can sign up for the first swim free.

Look for RKC & NOWCA at the TCR show, Sandown Park


RKC is launching the RKC Elite Triathlon Team:

                                                   RKC ELITE PROFILE & MISSION STATEMENT

"RKC Elite is the elite / celeb triathlon section of High Wycombe Triathlon Club (HWTC).  The eclectic mix of the team consists of a generation of role models. Triathletes born to win! In life and in triathlons!!
In fact this part of HWTC is very hard to get into because we want people at the top of their game. . . . however we don’t exclude anyone from consideration. If you think you can bring something to our team please send us your biography. It doesn’t just have to be race results. Remember we are looking for role models to inspire the next generation of fine young athletes and winners! Give us a compelling reason to put you in. We want to create a long term legacy of inspiration to young people, motivating them to see that if they have the desire, can work hard to do anything they want!
RKC athletes will be receiving fantastic support from our sponsors depending needs, ability and what we think they deserve.
At this time we would like to thank our sponsors for seeing the vision with us……
ON-running shoes, Pioneer, Giant Bikes, Buzz Bars, Soleus, ARGI+,"

NOWCA is launching its newest lake where it will hold its headquarters. Thorpe Swimming Lake is probably the most complete and beautiful swimming lake in the south east. It is certainly the biggest with the most facilities! NOWCA intend to run regular swim sessions, coaching 1-2-1 & groups with level 3 BTF coaches, there will be a series of swim and swim/run evets throughout the season. Also NOWCA Sales Shop will be selling triathlon equipment and a full range of wetsuits to 'try and buy'.

Pick up a flyer with details about how to get your first swim free!!

Welcome to the new look website - 13 December 2010

Long overdue I'm pleased to say my new website has arrived, just in time for the launch of the 2011 season.

If you are new here then please have a look around, I offer a variety of courses, 1-2-1 coaching for swim, bike, run and personal training plus training aids - my DVD's make perfect  gifts for those budding atheletes out there.

My New Year's resolution is to keep this blog updated - so stay tuned for frequent excursions into the World of Triathlon and beyond...

TCR 2011 is upon us next week. I am working hard to get ready for it. We are running the Zoggs SwimZone again and can't wait to meet everyone and give them swim analysis in the 'endless pool' - Stand Number B42

See you there.......
