From last (literally) to 3rd in my age category and 5th overall!

“Shelley, with your help, it has created a new confidence in the water for me. I have since swum in the pool continuously for 1500m in 45min. That might not sound like much to a champ but for me that was huge, since last year I struggled to get to the end of the 50m. In the Australia Day triathlon in the Swan River, our "friends" (the jellyfish) were present but were so fun that I ended up getting 3rd in my age category for the swim (5th overall). I'm normally the last out of the swim (literally). I am super happy and have the half ironman in Busselton and would not have entered otherwise. Words really can't express my gratitude to you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Maren Kate Scriven, WA.

Go for gold... in the Open Water

Cheers!

How to Master Open Water Swimming Clinics!
with Shelley Taylor-Smith

I used to panic in the water and didn’t enjoy the swim leg of triathlons... Now I am calm and relaxed!!!
“Just wanted to say huge thank you. I found your clinic both informative and very valuable. I used to panic in the water and really didn't enjoy my swim during my triathlons. However just having the knowledge and knowing what to do if I got in an uncomfortable position made it very calming and allowed me to relax when swimming. Having the opportunity to practise was awesome. I enjoyed it so much that today I went for an early morning ocean swim with my husband. Thank you again.”

 “When I looked for someone to motivate the Aust Swim team I wanted someone with a proved track record of success who would move them out of their comfort zone. Shelley’s 100% commitment, discipline and self belief in herself and the swimmer’s potential helped create the best ever performance of an Australian Open Water Swim team: 2 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze. These techniques are worth their weight in gold.”
Australian Swim Team, Head Coach, Alan Thompson




Performance Coaching:
World Champion Gold Medalist Shayne Reece & Coach Rohan Taylor "When I contacted Shelley I was looking for a positive female role model. I was fully aware of her reputation as an athlete and speaker but also someone who could pass on ways to not only to perform, but also to handle pressure. The girls greatly benefited from the ˝ day workshop experience with all swimming PB’s and Shayne Reese making the Olympic Team. Shelley also worked on strategies for the future in training and competition. Shelley provided me with great insight as to how to better communicate and how to provide the environment needed for success. As Head Coach it is my job to surround myself with great people to help me enhance my program and in Shelley I have found a great motivator! Cheers Shelley I look forward to the future."
Rohan Taylor, Head Coach Carey Aquatic Swimming Club VIC




Team Performance Coaching:
"Shelley was employed to prepare St Joseph’s 1st & 2nd VIII's psychologically for the Head of the River. We achieved the prestigious Australian National Schoolboy Champions 2005 title. Shelley is a woman of the highest integrity, totally professional and gifted with her ability to communicate positive messages to a variety of people. She brought a wealth of experience to the team and as a coach with 30yrs at Olympic, State, Club and Schoolboy level I found myself re-examining my own approach to the way I coached."
Michael Morgan, OAM, Senior Coach, St Josephs College, NSW, Australia
