Home town: North Hykeham
Favourite aquatic sport: Water polo
Having come from a competitive swimming background; I am now an England Junior water polo player. I currently play for City of Sheffield Water Polo Club at senior level having previously competed for the North East and Sheffield at junior levels.
I am currently fighting for selection for the U19 England Water Polo European Qualifier Squad in 2016. After starting coaching three years ago I have progressed through UKCC level 1 and 2 coaching badges and have ambitions to take my coaching and general knowledge of water polo further.
Having coached a number of squads and players at different levels I have discovered the need for volunteers at all levels.
I feel being on the ASA Youth forum I can help implement new initiatives to encourage and attract new volunteers to my sport.
I became involved with the City of Sheffield Water Polo Club management committee a year ago and since was recommended to join the National Youth Forum. It seemed a new and interesting challenge, and a programme I feel I can give a lot to.
It is the first time I have been on a forum like this and I hope I can make a real difference to water polo and the other aquatic disciplines.
