Sue first started coaching swimming in 1975 while living in the UK. Her interest in swimming continued after moving to South Australia and promptly qualified in 1985 as Coach at one of Adelaide’s Masters Clubs. Luckily for us she moved to the Sapphire Coast and is a founding member of The Stingrays and our head coach. Sue has a keen eye and almost a compulsive desire to see each swimmer perform at their best. She structures every session individually for a quality but fun experience for all the members.
The Sapphire Coast of NSW is a fabulous place to live BUT it had no Masters or adult swimming club. So, out of some desperation, Bruce started the club in 2017 with the help of a few like minded local swimmers.
Bruce takes on the president role reluctantly because his first love is to train and swim. An inbuilt desire that goes back over 25 years as a Masters NSW swimmer. A fruitful period that saw him post many State and National Masters records as well numerous World Top 10 rankings for his age group.
These days Bruce has backed off a bit in the pool but the passion is still there to keep the club going forward and to lend a hand with coaching.
