We would like to extend a massive thank you to Coach Kyle of Academy 3 for his time and efforts with the squad! Kyle has had to make the difficult decision to leave Stockport Metro in pursuit of future opportunities, but will not forget his time spent with the club both as a swimmer and coach.

Since starting on as a coach, Kyle has worked with many of our squads from Academy to International through offering coach cover and assistance. He is well known to all our swimmers and did a fantastic job working at all levels within our programme. We are so thankful for his dedication to Stockport Metro. The help he provided during our transition from Richard to myself last October/November required a massive commitment from Kyle to pick up additional coaching hours, while also balancing work and leading Academy 3. Since then he has been integral to the progress of our swimmers from Academy to Junior Development and beyond!

We wish him all the best in future! Kyle’s last coaching session with us is November 12th.

Moving forward we welcome Harvey Jones to the role as Academy 3 coach and Jolan Bennett to the role as Academy 2 coach! Both Harvey and Jolan swim to a high level with Stockport Metro having both competed at the British and English national championships. With a wealth of knowledge, Harvey and Jolan bring a great technical understanding and passion for swimming to the coaching team. Harvey has done an excellent job working with Academy 2 since January 2020 and Academy 3 on Sunday evenings since our return from lockdown. Jolan had done frequent coaching sessions with Academy prior to lockdown and demonstrated an enthusiastic coaching style during that time. Both coaches are excited about the opportunity and begin in their new roles on November 16th!
