Head Coach - Drew Millar

Drew is a silver licensed swim coach as well as holding a Bachelor of Education (Health & Physical Education) and over 25 years teaching experience within Education Qld.  Drew see's himself to be in a privileged position where he gets to see changes first hand in young people's lives.  Swimming to Drew is much more than a sport, swimming is a tool which can teach many invaluable skills for young people to utilise throughout their adult life.  Setting personal goals, showing the desire, the commitment and the self discipline to turn up to training time and time again in an effort to achieve one's goals are learned skills and qualities.  Competition in swimming brings with it individual successes and failures, thus providing each and every swimmer with opportunities to prepare for life's future experiences.  As a swimming coach Drew aims to develop each and every swimmer to become the best swimmer that they can be but more importantly to develop each swimmer to become the best person that they can be.
