 Head Coach

Matt Hill
Matt grew up as an all-round athlete and specialised in sprint swimming, qualifying for nationals in both freestyle and backstroke in the early 2000's. He then went on to coach in Gloucestershire before working over seas, where he would deliver yachts across the Atlantic and around the globe for more than ten years.
Matt is now happily married to a Cornish maid who has swam for Penzance in the past (Kerry Blewett), many of the master swimmers know her well.
Keeping a positive attitude on poolside, Matt will help coach the squad for individual PB's at club gala's and beyond county champs. All he asks in return is clear effort, full dedication and swimmers to be happy.

"I teach/coach the younger swimmers here at Penzance and I have been teaching swimming since 2000. I have five daughters, three still swimming at county/regional level for the club and Hayle SLS.

I am on the committee and am an ASA level 2 judge as well as having undertaken safeguarding and team manager training. 

I swam competitively and played polo in the London and Essex leagues in till my 30s.

The world of swimming can initially be confusing so if you have any questions please stop me and I will try to help :)" Joanne

As I have 2 girls in the club thought i should offer to help out as I want them to be part of an organised successful club.  I have no swimming background but capable of doing a bit of admin and I enjoy watching my girls swim, make friends and compete!"

"My daughters have both swam at the club for many years, so after training to be a timekeeper for the club champs I decided to also volunteer my help on the committee.
I am quite creative so I will be keeping the clubs display cabinet up to date with any new photos of galas that I take."
