With our newly renovated pool almost ready to welcome our North Coast swimmers, we are also proud to announce the opening of a new swimming academy to match our new facilities and ambition in the pool.

The obvious choice was to look local. Dominique Donner, Project Manager for Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation SA, Swim director at NC Dolphins Swim Team – KZN and former African Triathlon champion, was quick to take on this opportunity. Based out of the old Locker Room in Ballito, Dominique and her team will now run the club’s senior squad trainings from the CNC pool.

We are also thrilled at the news that Dominique recruited Terence Parkin to join her coaching team and to head up the North Coast College Swimming Team. Terence is a celebrated South African swimmer, who won the silver medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in the 200 meters Breaststroke. Terence also competed in the 2004 Summer Olympics, as well as the 2005 Deaflympics in which he won two gold medals.

Terence will work closely with the Sports Department to ensure that all swimmers are exposed to the very best training methods and achieve to their full potential in the pool. We hope that Terence’s inclusion into the Crawford family will inspire students and coaches alike.

The CNC squad had their first gala on Wednesday at Port Natal. Congratulations to all swimmers for achieving a fourth place overall.
