credentials and career as a fulltime professional swim coach. As a youth Justin was a national level competitor and
swam at Olympic Games trials and he and was tutored by current Australian and Olympic head coach Alan
Thompson. In fact, following his swimming days, Justin cemented his desire to become a coach with Thompson
remaining a mentor, today. Justin believes in not only coaching the swimmer, but also ensuring the person develops
in a wholistic approach. The swimmer not only attains better talents and abilities but also learns about their
character, the powers and and capacities of their minds and to help equip them for life's everyday challenges when
their swimming days are over. Justin's swimming CV makes compelling reading. He is the current president of the
ASCTA NSW Coaches Association. Justin firmly believes in also helping teach the coaches who in turn develop the
boys and girls at the ABC Swimming academies. Between 2002-2006, Justin, was head coach of the NSW swimming team

member of the Australian Commonwealth Games team in Melbourne. His coaching career is one which has traversed both
on domestic and international waters.

pool,''Justin Rothwell said.
