Linda Peake


"My name is Linda Peake and I am one of the coaches at Rugby Synchro. I mainly coach the little ones now, I have been coaching at the club for 20 years. I hold my Level 2 Coaching Certificate and my Level 3 Judge. I really enjoy being a coach as I find it very satisfying to see the girls (tiddlers as I call them) grow from being complete novices of the sport and usually very shy, with absolutely no experience to performing in the bigger competitions, and growing into well adjusted, confident young ladies. I am proud to coach the Nemos as their journey started with me. I also help out with all of the other squads in the club.


Emilia Walker

I still swim when I am not coaching to keep myself fit and healthy as well as being coach for the 131415 National Squad. I have been coaching at the club for 4 years I hold my Level 2 Coach, Level 1 Teacher in Aquatics and Level 2 Judge. I love being a member of the club as I get to train with my friends and I also enjoy passing my knowledge onto other swimmers to help them develop."
