NZSCTA Rookie Swim Coach of the Year 2015
Hi! I’ve been teaching swimming for more than ten years now from babies
to adults. I used to be a competitive swimmer back in the Philippines
for 8 years. I love teaching children to be safe and watching them
having fun in the water is very fulfilling. I have one son, Ethan and my
brother also used to teach at Fulton Swim School. I love the outdoors
and spending time with my son. I am a qualified AUSTSWIM Teacher for
Swimming and Water Safety, for Infant and Preschool Aquatics, and also
an AUSTSWIM Assessor for Swimming and Water Safety. I am the Head Coach
for FAST (Fulton Amateur Swim Team) which is our competitive swim team.

Hi my name is Chris,I’ve been in and around the water since as long as I can remember. As well as being a surf lifeguard, I am currently studying Paramedicine at university. This has increased my awareness of water safety and the need for children and adults alike to be able to be confident and safe in the water. Outside of work, you can find me catching fish under and on top of the water as well as exploring new places around the Coromandel peninsula.

Hi my name is Jacob, I have been swimming my entire life. I was in the pool with Mum and Dad before I could even walk and went through swimming lessons during my early childhood. I grew up around the water, spending summers camping at lakes and beaches. I have played Water Polo and Underwater Hockey competitively and really enjoying wakeboarding and surfing even though I’m not too good at the latter.
I know the importance of learning to swim and how being in the water is an integral part of growing up In New Zealand, because of this I am excited to share what I know with the kids of today.

NZSCTA Rookie Swim Teacher of the Year 2016
Hiya, I started swimming with Fulton Swim School when I was 11, after moving to Franklin from the Coromandel. Having grown up at the beach I spent most of my childhood in the water and have always loved swimming! I was part of surf lifesaving for 5 years and was a rookie lifeguard for the last 2 years. I still have a strong passion for swimming and like to get into a pool and swim whenever I can. I am so proud to be able to pass my passion onto the children I teach and to watch them grow as competent swimmers.
