Home stays for coaches - can anyone help?

Dear Swimmers

It's that time of year again when we invite several coaches from around the globe to come over to Perth and develop their own swim coaching skills for a period of 2 weeks between 11th and 23rd November. 

Both Adam and Emma will be back during this period as well, so it'll be "all hands on the coaching deck" so to speak which will be great for you all in the pool as well with the additional input. 

There might also be the option of getting a 1-2-1 Video Analysis & Stroke Correction Session in with a couple of the coaches during their stay. I'm personally fully booked for these until the start of April if you need your stroke checking over, please reply to this email and I'll collate a list of interested parties. For full details on this service, please check out: 

Please also note that Coach Sally is now running these 1-2-1 sessions as well to great effect and has had a plethora of excellent feedback, so if you need seeing asap, drop Sally a line at

I am yet to hear exact dates of arrival departure from the coaches listed below, but if anyone has a spare room and would be happy to accommodate one or more of the coaches during this period, that'd be very much appreciated. Contributing to costs and even a little weekly rental wouldn't be out of the question, at your discretion of course. In 2011 we organised a group house for the 8 coaches at that point, but being a smaller group is making this a little cost prohibitive this time around. Here are the coaches:

  • Morgan Williams, UK
  • Cath Liversidge, Calgary, Canada (although actually a Pom from around the corner from me in the UK!)
  • Stacee Seay, Chicago, USA
  • Dominic Tsui, Hong Kong
  • (potentially) Karl Stine, Florida, USA

Please let me know if you can assist. Obviously if you're very close to the pool, even better! ;-)

Lastly, I've been collating attendances over the last 2 weeks in the various squad sessions to see where we have potential "gaps" and spots for all those keen bees thinking about training for Rottnest. I will be sending out full details of our 2014 Rottnest Channel Swim Program very soon, but if you've not been down for a while and were hoping to get back into it, now would be a great time to let me know of your intentions as we're already 90% full across the board and I will start to open up any availability to the 287 people currently (still) on the wait list. Reply back by email which sessions you were hoping to attend. Thanks!
