“I have been coaching for 15 years and enjoy sharing my training and racing experience with other swimmers,” said Tayliah, who also works as a lifeguard at the Rockingham Aquatic Centre. “Whether you are training for an event, want to improve your endurance or correct your techinique, I can help you to achieve your goals.”
