Introducing your new Head Coach – Tom White

Posted by Godalming Swimming Club on Dec 22 2021 at 01:29AM PST

We are very pleased to introduce our new Head Coach – Tom White.

Tom is a former national swimmer and Surrey Captain, Tom represented Haslemere S.C in his youth when he competed at 5 National Championships and Captained Surrey to the Intercounty Championships at Ponds Forge. After taking a break from swimming Tom came back to the pool for a brief spell when he represented Godalming S.C in 2014.

As a Personal Trainer Tom has always enjoyed staying fit, in recent years he has rediscovered his competitive nature and taken to the sport of Triathlon, in which he now represents Team GB Age-group and will be competing at the European and World Championships next year.

Tom is excited to be joining Godalming S.C as Head Coach and sharing his knowledge and experience in the pool to encourage and motivate our swimmers. Tom is looking forward to getting to know all the swimmers and coaching staff and will be taking charge of all Senior squad sessions starting in January 2022.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jon White, who is stepping down as Head Coach after more than 10 years in charge. He has been incredibly dedicated to the club and worked tirelessly supporting swimmers to reach their potential with lots of successes. We are very lucky that Jon will continue to be part of the club going forward continuing to coach and offering advice and support.
