In August 2022 we officially welcomed Coach Sam and his team from Triple S Swim School to the Casuarina Storm family. Sam has hit the ground running and we are excited for the future of the Club.
Sam is a young, determined swim coach who began his own competitive swimming journey when he was 12 years old. During his competitive swimming days, Sam represented the Northern Territory on numerous occasions, including Pacific School Games, School Sports Swimming, Arafura Games, and the 10th BIMPNT-EAGA Friendship Games (Brunei). His leadership qualities were evident then, as he was often selected as NT Team Captain.
Sam has been working throughout Darwin as a Coach and Learn to Swim Teacher for the past 6 years and has since refined and started his own, highly successful, swim school in the Greater Darwin Region: Triple S Swim School.
Most recently, Sam and Triple S was awarded the 2023 Royal Life Saving NT Swim and Survive Swim School of the Year Award and a Certificate of Thanks from Royal Life Saving Australia for the highest standard of teaching swimming and water safety. This recognition is a testament to Sam and his team's unwavering dedication to promoting water safety and ensuring the highest quality swimming instruction. Well done team!
Sam is a qualified Development Level Coach and has diverse contacts throughout the swimming industry in Australia. He also completed his Bachelor of Secondary Education with a focus in Mathematics and Health and Physical Education in 2023. Sam’s background in Education, combined with his experience in competitive swimming and learn to swim, makes him an asset to Casuarina Storm, and swimming in the NT in general.
Sam strives to create a positive, supportive training environment which allows for others to believe in themselves and realise their potential in all aspects of their lives. Sam brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with his coaching, and we are excited for the future of the Club.
