Welcome To Canterbury Ms Sarah Scott | Our New Head Swimming Coach: Feature Video

Please welcome our new Head Swimming Coach Ms Sarah Scott to our Canterbury Community!

Sarah began her swim coaching career in Western Australia, before being invited to join the coaching team at the Nunawading Swimming Club in Melbourne, Victoria.

Upon starting this role in 2015, Sarah also took the reins of the National Development Swimming Squad, before taking the lead of the National Age Swimming Program shortly after.

In conjunction with her primary coaching role, Sarah worked closely with the Nunawading High Performance Squad – alongside 2020 Olympians Brendon Smith, Jessica Hansen and Matthew Temple; 2016 Paralympian Madeleine Scott; and 2022 Australian Team members Bowen Gough and Mikayla Smith.

In 2020, she became Head Coach of Melbourne’s Northcote Swimming Club, followed by Head Coach of the South Lake Dolphins Swimming Club in 2022, in Fremantle (WA).

Sarah holds an Advanced Coaching Accreditation and is in the process of finalising her Performance Coaching Accreditation.

Over the past 10 years, Sarah has shown an amazing ability for nurturing and developing high performance levels on the national swimming stage, with three of her former athletes earning a place on the 2022 Australian Junior Pan Pacific Swim Team.

In addition to her coaching experience, Sarah also holds a Bachelor of Sport Science, majoring in Exercise Physiology from Deakin University.

She also places a high level of focus on the development of healthy performance mindsets, with an emphasis on growth and resilience.
