AUSTRALIAN SWIM COACH’S  RECOGNITION IN USA

John Coutts, the General Manager of the Carlile Swimming organisation (which is one of our clients), was inducted into the United States Swim School Associations Hall of Fame, on the 9th October this year, at the National Conference in Denver, Colorado.

He joins Forbes and Ursula Carlile (also clients of our firm), who were inducted several years ago as the first international inductees into the Hall of Fame. One of the first inductees into this Association was Benjamin Franklin, who was inducted posthumously for his contribution to swimming in the US in the eighteenth century.

The Carlile Group have been clients of ours since 1969 and the connection doesn’t end there. Bill Stanley’s wife Margaret, was Forbes Carlile’s back stroke demonstrator, at the old Drummoyne Baths, back in the 1950’s.

It is a small world.
