A nation swimming

Amy Bryant joins Swim England’s Sport Operation Committee

Swim England has welcomed Amy Bryant on to its Sport Operation Committee (SOC).

Amy has been involved in aquatics since the age of 10 and has been a constant figure in the world of artistic swimming.

She takes her place on the committee for the next four years replacing John Hewitt, who recently stood down from the position.

The SOC reports directly to the Swim England Board and has a wide brief which includes overseeing the effective delivery of the pathway for all disciplines.

It also provides direction on the development of our sports from clubs through to regions, as well as providing guidance and input into the plans to deliver Swim England’s strategy.

Amy is a dedicated member of the aquatics community and has worked within Swim England’s East Region for several years.

She was the region’s artistic swimming manager for four years before becoming the regional development officer for the area, where she supported the delivery of each of our aquatic disciplines.

‘A great opportunity’

Currently, Amy is the lead artistic swimming coach at Hatfield Swimming Club and is both a level 2 judge for the sport as well as a tutor for the Institute of Swimming.

Her experience and knowledge saw Amy become a key voice in several of Swim England’s projects, particular within the development team.

Amy also has a wider understanding of the sporting sector through her work as the senior education manager at Sport Structures, where she worked to support organisations such as national governing bodies, Active Partnerships and community sport foundations with their education and training needs.

After joining the committee, Amy spoke about having the chance to support the sport that has given her so much throughout her life.

She said: “I am looking forward to joining SOC and being part of the governance structure in Swim England.

“It is a great opportunity to use both my aquatics knowledge and my knowledge of other national governing bodies to support the development of the sport which has given me so much.”
