Meet the Coaches

Hester Pollock
Level 3 Triathlon Coach
Level 2 Swimming Coach
Level 2 Open Water Swim
Level 1 Running Coach

I fell in love with Triathlon 40 years ago when racing in Asia. The reason I love it so much is because it’s not easy and every race is a challenge. The feeling when you complete a tough race is amazing! My three children all have grown up doing multi-sports and I now want to support many more children so that they too fall in love with sport. Whether or not you are competitive, I believe everyone can achieve great things. I have raced all distances in triathlon competing for GB Age group at World Champs and European Championships, and distances up to Ironman. I love to coach and inspire children.

 

 

York Harris
Level 1 Triathlon Coach

I have been involved with Beachborough Tri Club for 4 years, helping out as a parent and as a Marshall, during this time both my children have been involved with the club.

I decided to become a coach for two reasons: Firstly to support my son who is currently in TS1 and his fellow athletes. Secondly, to support the club further as the coaches do such an amazing job and I wanted to give something back.  I am a keen cyclist, swimmer & runner and having discovered triathlon’s later in life look forward to doing more in the future.

Ollie Campbell
Level 1 Triathlon Coach

I have always been interested in sport and see it as a vital part of a person’s life. Having had so much enjoyment playing rugby I wanted to give something back. Both of my daughters are triathletes so I decided to train as a Triathlon coach so that I could help with their training sessions. 

The enjoyment that I get from coaching is watching each child gain in confidence. Triathlon is such a hard but rewarding sport and I get such joy from seeing children learn and then master a new skill. To then see them compete with smiles on their faces is fantastic. 

Ros Kelling
Level 2 Running Coach
Banbury Harriers

My passion in life is running.  I have been a middle distance coach at Banbury Harriers Athletic Club for the past 15 years working primarily with athletes between the ages of 11 and 18.  My whole ethos is enjoyment – if sessions are varied in a fun and supportive environment athletes will naturally progress and get the best out of themselves, and hopefully have a love of running for the rest of their lives.  

Zoe Pollock
Level 1 Swimming Coach

As well as being a previous national level swimmer myself, I’m currently a National level heptathlete. Competing in the heptathlon like triathlon involves juggling many events (7 in the heptathlon!)I love multi events as there is a skill to being able to put together many disciplines, and to juggle the variety of training required to be the best.

I’m passionate about making sport fun and inspiring the future generation. 

 

 

Katie Pamphlett
Level 1 Swimming Coach

I have been competing in triathlon for as long as I can remember!  I am the first to admit a big part of triathlon for me is the ‘social’ aspect!  I love training with the crew in the club and Banbury Harriers – it makes training so much more enjoyable.  I started competing in local events and then moved on to the national Super Series.

I really enjoy teaching the younger athlete’s and seeing them improve makes it all worth while.

James Bridge
Level 1 Triathlon Coach
RFU Level 2 Rugby Coach

Sport is a big part of my life, whether that be coaching, spectating or participating, I enjoy all aspects. Making sport fun as well as rewarding is my coaching philosophy.

I first came to triathlon in 2008 using it as a goal to work towards whilst gym training, and still race as often as I can. The multi-sport element creates unique challenges that always give an opportunity for improvement, which keeps the interest and enjoyment levels high.
