The Team
Dave Sankey - Head Coach

Dave Sankey - Head Coach DS swimDave started DS Swim in 2006 after working with US Olympic coach David Salo on his swim camp in Los Angeles, and realising that swim clinics in the UK were not offering swimmers individual help with their technique, and were failing to use video analysis effectively.


Dave has been involved with swimming as a swimmer and coach for over 20 years and during that time has worked with swimmers at every level, from absolute beginners up to international athletes.


Duncan McFarlane

Duncan McFarlane Assistant Coach and Video ProducerDuncan has been involved with swimming for over 30 years as both a swimmer and a coach.


Spencer George

Spencer has been teaching and coaching for more than 15 years, coaching swimmers of all ages at all levels up to National Level.


Grant Robe

Grant worked as an assistant to DS Swim Head Coach Dave Sankey when Dave was lead coach of the Nottinghamshire County age group squad, occasionally leading sessions in Dave's absence. He was also spent a short time as Head Coach of Portland Swimming Club, a small development club in Nottingham. Although Grant is no longer involved in day to day coaching, having moved on to pursuing other interests, we are delighted that he remains part of the DS Swim team, occasionally assisting Dave on our larger swim clinics.
