Natasha Garry

About Natasha:

I started swimming at the age of 4 and I struggled at first, however over time I developed a love for the water and at age 11 I started swimming competitively for Wycombe District Swimming Club. I have spent a year in Australia working as a Sport and Exercise Scientist at the Sports Institute in Sydney where I was fortunate enough to work with Olympic level swimmers.

I have been swim teaching for 4 years and have taught parent and baby classes all the way up to national level athletes. I want to pass my love and passion for swimming onto future generations as being able to swim is a life-long skill.

My Achievements:

I competed at British National Championships in frontcrawl events and made finals for 200m and 400m frontcrawl. I also represent University of Bath in frontcrawl events and relays. Additionally, when I was 16 I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro which taught me how important teamwork and determination is.

Creating a fun and enjoyable swimming environment:

When learning to swim I believe it is so important to create a fun and exciting environment to ensure our swimmers are engaged. Not only do I provide constructive feedback and let the  swimmer know what they are doing well but I also show how they could develop, to ensure that they become the best swimmer possible and maximise their potential.
