THE CHELTENHAM PHOENIX TEAM

In addition to our fabulous coaches, we have a committee comprised of elected members who manage the running of the club, supported by qualified officials and poolside volunteers who make our event attendance run smoothly. We ask all our parents to get involved with the club and have a wide range of supporting roles available.

Our head coaches:
