Damien Nominated for Coach of the Year

London sport logo

Damien Bryan has worked tirelessly for KRSC since he joined the Club in 2012. Initially working as Assistant Head Coach, he was appointed as Head Coach in 2014, since when Damien has exerted enormous influence and inspiration on the Club to adopt his coaching philosophy.

In his time as Head Coach he has led a full re-structure of the Club, which now has over 500 members, has presided over a recent record number of Regional and National qualifiers and is coaching Lucy Hawley who won a bronze medal at the National Championships.

Damien’s typical day sees him rise at 4am to plan and travel to the Senior Performance Squad session at Kingfisher Leisure Centre where he is on poolside for 2 hours coaching Kingston’s finest swimmers. Delivering innovative and state of the art sessions with an emphasis on fun and technique he gets the best out of his athletes. Damien commits the lion’s share of his day to administration of the Club to ensure that the 10 strong coaching staff are properly directed. In the evening Damien will be back on poolside for at least 2 hours coaching the Club’s Senior Performance Squad or Junior Squads.

This year has seen Kingston Royals send numerous swimmers to the English, Scottish, Croatian, Open Water and disability Nationals for the first time in years. On top of this commitment and passion for Kingston Royals and swimming in the borough, Damien is also fresh from having led the Irish International team at the European Junior Open Water Championships in Switzerland. Damien also headed to Russia as a member of the Irish team’s support staff at the 16th FINA Swimming World Championships in Kazan.
