Our Coaches

Michael Cooper

I first became involved with swimming over 15 years ago through Surf Life Saving and more recently Triathlon. I have been coaching both for the past 8 years across a wide range of availabilities including Children, recreational swimmers through to elite level triathletes. 

I hope to pass on some of my knowledge of swimming to help as many people as possible to meet and achieve their goals, no matter how big or small.

Justine Spurr

I recently moved away from swimming competitively after being heavily involved for the past 19 years. I  competed at numerous Commonwealth and Olympic trials as well as took opportunities to race and train overseas. I have returned to university to complete my Teaching Masters, staying involved in swimming through coaching and training for the Rottnest Channel Swim. I am deeply passionate about swimming and sharing my knowledge of the sport with others to help them achieve.

Arna Couper

 I have swum competitively from a very young age and grew up immersed in the sport of swimming.  Over the years I have competed at a range of levels from regional, state, and national championships, to the commonwealth games trials. I stopped swimming competitively at the beginning of 2021, with my focus shifting towards completing my degree in occupational therapy. Despite no longer swimming and training at a competitive level, my passion for the sport continues. Moving forward my aim to support others in achieving their own goals in this rewarding sport.  .
