Amy Carruthers

Lead coach J3, J4 and J5 amy.coach@plymouthleander.com

Amy has joined us to look after our very youngest swimmers.

With experience of a much smaller club in Dorset, Amy is now excited to be part of the #bluearmy and the pathway we offer our junior swimmers.

"I'm really enjoying getting to know PL's youngest swimmers - and helping to select them at our weekly trials. There's no better satisfaction than seeing their enthusiasm for swimming and watching them improve week by week .. helping them to be the best they can be!"

She bakes a mean chocolate cake  and is kept busy by her two Border Collie cross Springer Spaniel puppies - called Loki and Lotti!
