Coaching Philosophy

The Dynamo Swim Club’s coaching philosophy has been crafted by head coach Lidia Lucaciu Menzies. It focuses on the fact that while swimming is generally perceived as an individual sport it is a team of people that helps a swimmer progress. As such all of coaching staff work with all of the swimmers. This allows for the swimmers to learn from coaches who may have differing coaching techniques or styles or who simply may notice different things about the swimmers’ strokes.
