About me

Hi, I’m Chris! I can’t wait to help you unlock your true coaching potential.

Coach Chris Profile Picture

With over two decades of coaching experience and a lifelong passion for swimming, I am the driving force behind Between The Laps. A visionary mentor, a seasoned swimmer, and a compassionate leader, I have dedicated my career to ensuring that no young swimmer's potential goes untapped due to a lack of understanding and empathetic coaching.  

A Journey of Empowerment


My journey in swimming began as a young athlete who fell into the sport by accident. After failing to pass the Red Cross Swimming Badges, my parents decided to put me into competitive swimming for a season so I could be water safe.

After spending over 21 years honing my skills and embracing the values that swimming instills – discipline, perseverance, and a strong sense of camaraderie, transitioning from a competitive swimmer to a coach, I embarked on a mission to empower young athletes with the transformative power of swimming.

Unlocking the Coach's Potential

With over two decades of coaching experience, I have witnessed firsthand the immense impact a coach can have on young swimmers' lives. I recognized a recurring pattern – swimmers burning out or struggling to reach their full potential due to coaches lacking the tools and understanding to connect with their athletes on a deeper level.

The Birth of Between The Laps
& The Elite Swimmer Academy


Fuelled by the desire to make a difference, I founded Between The Laps, a groundbreaking coaching program dedicated to enriching swimmers' abilities, no matter their level or dreams. The program fosters empathy, a personal touch, and an emotional connection between coach and swimmers—a critical factor that empowers athletes to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams.

Empowering Swimmers


At Between The Laps, I lead a growing community of athletes who share a common vision – to be stronger, faster, and more confident in the water. Through a carefully curated blend of tailored content, personalized feedback, and insightful discussions, I empower swimmers to dig deeper, race harder with more confidence, and swim more efficiently.

A Champion for Transformation


My profound belief in the power of empathetic coaching and personalized mentorship has shaped the ethos of Between The Laps. With a holistic approach that addresses the physical and emotional aspects of coaching, I guide swimmers in igniting a spark of passion in their training that fuels growth and drive towards achieving greatness—both in the pool and beyond.
