Coach Darren TuckerHead Coach - Darren Tucker

My name is Darren Tucker but most people know me as Coach Swimfast!

My background in competitive swimming goes back to when I first learnt to swim and always wanted to be the first to the wall, this stuck with me and saw me through Essex Counties, Regionals and National Competitions over a 9 year swimming career.

With my love of swimming it was a natural pathway into coaching. I've been in an assistant coaching role for around 6 years and now have the opportunity to lead as Head Coach here at Dunmow Atlantis Swimming Club, with the club being well established in competitive swimming up to national level and right down to a very comprehensive learn to swim program. The aim is to keep the standards high and help the children and club continue to grow.

Here at Dunmow we have a great team of coaches and teachers which helps the quality to stay high, right from the roots. I'm a strong believer in 'there's not one right way of swimming for everyone,' we are all different in our own way and a strong motto I live by is, 'it's not about how fast you swim, it's about how you swim fast!'

If you're looking for a club with a strong family feel and the ambition to help you be the best swimmer you can, pay Dunmow a visit and I'll see you poolside.
