Rhys Thomas- Burgess

Rhys started volunteering on poolside with the Skills Squads whilst he was still swimming and competing himself under Swim Swansea. Rhys has been in the programme for over 10 years and has been coached by various coaches of past and present. This experience of being coached by various coaches, has allowed him to learn from each one and develop their coaching styles into his own.

As a Level 2 swimming teacher, Rhys’ enthusiasm to teach the skills needed to progress is equally matched by the swimmers who love having Rhys on board.

Alongside his teaching, he is a Level 2 Coach for our club and coaches Performance Silver. He is aspiring to become a Level 3 coach in the near future.

Rhys strives to go to the top of his profession, and his determination to succeed and develop himself as a coach, is shown through his swimmers’ performances and the rapport he has with his swimmers and fellow coaches.
