Wendy Seale is a woman of outstanding integrity and generous personality.
Wendy Seale has been a member of Masters Swimming NSW since 2006,
Wendy has been one of the most active and enthusiastic members of our club in the past six years. Her achievements and contribution towards the running of the club have been outstanding. Wendy was Club Secretary for four of those years, and in 2012 our annual BPS Carnival secretary, all this in addition to a weekly roster as coach for the Ryde AUSSI Masters. Members have benefited greatly from her tireless contribution to masters swimming.
Wendy has been a club coach since 2007. She has inspired members with her dedication, knowledge and experience. Wendy is qualified as a level 1 coach and is employed by Knox Grammar School Aquatic Centre as swim instructor.
In 2008 Wendy was part of the coaching panel headed by head Coach Vicky Watson (Past national coach of the Year) coaching the club’s team of 23 swimmers who successfully participated in the XII FINA World Masters Swimming Championships in Perth and again in 2009 for the World Masters Games held in Sydney.
Wendy was part of the coaching panel organising our Thredbo training camp in 2012. This was an extremely successful event. Over a dozen members of the club together with members of the Tuggeranong and Albury Masters swimming clubs travelled with her to Thredbo for a weekend of intensive swimming training and coaching. Numbers at this annual event increase each year.
Since joining the club Wendy has assisted with the coaching needs of our annual Swim-a-thon which raises money in our club annually. Ryde AUSSI Masters supports a different charity each year.
