Paul Newsome

The world's most passionate swim coach
I am proud of my passion for my craft of swim coaching and am delighted to share my wide and varied 20+ years on the pool decks and water-ways of the world with you.

All I've ever wanted to do is help other swimmers and coaches learn to swim (or coach) better freestyle. In fact, it's the only job I've ever had the fortune to do and I wouldn't change that for the world.

My earliest memories centre around visits with my Mum to the local swimming baths. I didn't take to the water naturally (in fact I vomited in the pool in my first lesson!), but I started to develop a curiosity for the rhythm and fluidity of freestyle swimming and ultimately followed this quest for learning the mechanics of efficiency through university with a degree in Sport & Exercise Science.

I vividly recall my tutor at university confidently telling me, "Newsome, you're not a scientist, you're a coach!". He was a scary guy, so who was I to argue? And that, as they say, was that!

My beloved Grandma always said I was a born teacher, but what I love most about I do is simply sharing my own experience as an avid swimmer and coach. There is no greater joy than working with others wanting to learn as I have done from those who've helped shape my own career. Please play it forwards for me (and them!).
