Albany Creek Leisure Centre squad coaches make a splash in international competitive swimming

Congratulations to our Albany Creek Leisure Centre squad coaches in Brisbane. Head Coach Richard Sleight (pictured left) has been selected as an Australian Junior Team coach as a part of the Junior Commonwealth Games swim team travelling to the Bahamas this month. Richard trained Dan Jacobson at Albany Creek Leisure Centre, with Dan competing in this year’s Australian Age Championships.

Assistant Coach Ben Allen will be travelling to Budapest for the Fina World Championships as part of the Paulus Wildeboer scholarship. Each year swimming Queensland selects eight top performing coaches for the scholarship to help develop them with international experience and mentoring. This will be an incredible experience for Ben as he will learn from the Australian Senior National Team’s managers and coaches during international meets.
