Karen Thevenau, a well know swimming coach in the Durban North community has recently joined Northwood School’s Aquatics centre. Karen will take on the role of 1st team swimming coach, as well as running high performance sessions with students. “I look forward to putting the emphasis on technique and fitness to bring out the full swimming potential in the boys”. She joins forces with Haydn Skinner, who relocated from Grey PE to take up the position of Waterpolo 1st team coach at the beginning of this year. Together the two newly appointed specialist coaches are streamlining the aquatics programme, bringing a synergy that will seriously challenge their traditional rivals in the pool.
