Coach Bio – Bozena Kowalska (Bozi)

I’m originally from Poland and I’ve been calling Adelaide home for last 27 years.
I’ve been involved in swimming my whole life, first as a competitor and then as a teacher and coach. I’m a Bronze level ASCTA coach and I also have Masters Degree in Physical Education with specialisation in swimming. You can speak to me in English, Polish, Spanish and Russian.
I enjoy very much working with junior swimmers teaching them correct technique and preparing for competitions.
I hope that my long experience in teaching variety of levels (30 years), my knowledge and skills will help our young athletes to develop a good foundation for a future success.
