Meet Simon Mayne

January 31, 2017

We are really lucky to have a dedicated, funny (looking) professional swim coach at Black Sands.

Simon started coaching in the UK while doing his Phys Ed degree in Major Aquatics.  He continued coaching in Hawkes Bay whilst working as a schoolteacher before he moved to work full time as a swim coach.  He has had national record holders in all strokes and Individual Medley and holds Gold accreditation with Swimming NZ.

He has coached Daniel Bell into the 2008 Beijing olympics, helped Lauren Boyle breakthrough into world swimming and currently coaches Paralympic swimmer Cameron Lesley the triple gold medalist.  


In short - he's a pretty amazing coach, and he makes setting the 5am alarm worthwhile! Swim squad is every Wednesday at West Wave, Henderson, come down and have a go for free and join us for brekkie after!
