Brian has over 20 years' experience coaching and within the aquatic industry. Having started in learn to swim teaching 3-year olds and then making his way into the coaching world, Brian has an understanding from start to finish of a swimmer's journey. 

Brian came heavily recommended by Swimming Queensland due to his experience and down to earth nature.


Over the years Brian has had over 20 swimmers reach a national swimming level and over 100 reaching a state level.  


Through his dedication to water education and youth development it is much more than just reaching a high level of swimming but more about reaching their full potential in whatever they choose. 

Brian's coaching philosophy is simple: 

Brian believes that through encouragement, and kindness all potential can be achieved in all aspects of life.

Training Standards/Behaviour

All St Peter's/SPCA club swimmers are expected to maintain the highest standards of behaviour at training, swim meets and club nights. Our Primary goal is for swimmers to enjoy themselves, to train hard and be respectful to the coach, staff and fellow swimmers.

Swim Meets

Swimmers in the Performance Squad who wish to compete at QLD State Championships with a goal to qualify for Age Nationals should speak with their coach regarding which swim meets they should attend during the season. We recommend that swimmers enter no more than 2 carnivals a month. All swimmers are required to wear a SPCA swim cap when competing at scheduled meets.

Club Nights

Swimmers from all squad levels are encouraged to attend our  club nights and participate at the highest standard.  It is a night where club members and families are encouraged to help with the night, socialise and more importantly have fun.
