Tracy was fortunate enough to have been a competitive swimmer at Beckenham Swimming Club, training long hours 6 days a week right up to the age of 21! At that time Beckenham was the best club in Britain under the Olympic Coach at the time Dave Haller. Later on Tracy has trained and swam in the Masters on several occasions, butterfly being her favorite stroke.
With the knowledge she has gained through competing and teaching over 36 years, she can offer a wealth of experience. Tracy works to understand and interact with pupils and identifying their individual needs. All pupils are individuals and require different approaches. Tracy will ensure that this will all help to achieving the ultimate goal of being able to swim competently.
