Durham Performance Hub Success

On Saturday 25th April, the Durham Performance Swimming hub ran a fantastic session hosted by John Moore and Sedgefield Swimming Club at Newton Aycliffe Pool.

In total, 36 swimmers attended the session with representation from Peterlee, Durham, Sedgefield and Derwentside swimming clubs. The swimmers were coached by John, Paul Woodley (Derwentside) and Chris Dove.

Paul Woodley from Derwentside Swimming Club, who coordinates the hub sessions said ”I want to say a big thank you to John Moore for hosting and running the session. Everyone couldn’t have been more accommodating! All the swimmers, coaches and parents really enjoyed the session. It was great to take the Durham Hub to another venue!“.

The Durham Hub sessions are going from strength to strength with two athletes connected to the Durham Hub recently selected to represent Great Britain this summer. Congratulations go to John for coaching Hannah Featherstone to another successful British Championships where Hannah has been selected again to represent Great Britain in the European Junior Championships in Baku while congratulations also go to Paul for coaching Jess Thielmann to another successful British Championships and selection for the world championship team in Russia.
