Meet The Team!
As our name, Elite Swim School suggests, we strive for excellence; we are coaches, not instructors who employ proven and innovative, unique coaching and teaching methods. Our coaches have over sixteen years of experience and have earned an impressive list of accreditations and certificates throughout their careers.
Head Coach Gary Leafe
Head Coach, Gary Leafe, has been a swim coach for over 25 years, a triathlon coach for ten years and a strength and conditioning coach for nine years.
Gary brings to the business a wealth of knowledge and experience, which would be almost impossible to find elsewhere. After an impressive career in health, fitness, training and coaching, Gary decided to channel his strength, enthusiasm and passion into what he enjoys the most – swim coaching, and as a result, Leafe Elite Swim School was founded.
Assistant Coach Chris Leafe

Sharing the same passion for swimming as his father, Gary, Chris joined his father in swim coaching in 1999. Alongside swim coaching, Chris also works as a personal trainer, after completing the necessary qualifications a few years back.
