As we are all aware, Richard Gheel departed from our Club yesterday as Head Coach for a new post in New Zealand! This is a fantastic opportunity for Richard and we the Executive, the Coaches, the parents & swimmers wish him every success in his career down under!
There will be a transition period until we appoint a new Head Coach and I would be grateful for your patience as we embark on a recruitment process to find Richard’s successor. Myself and the Executive are confident that although Richard has departed, we will continue with the excellent success of our Club’s swimmers and the appointment of a new Head Coach brings exciting times ahead.
We have an excellent team of Coaches within the Club and they will continue to provide exemplary coaching for all our squads during this time.
I hope you will continue to support us as we enter a new era for our Club!
Brian Chair of LCSC
