ASA honours coach Marian

First published in Other Sport by

A WOMAN who has taught hundreds of children to swim in Southend has been given an award by the sport’s governing body.

Marian Ramm received a volunteer award from the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) for her outstanding service to Southend on Sea Swimming Club (SOS) and the local community.

She joined SOS in the early 1970s when her two daughters wanted to improve their swimming and learn to dive, and helped raise funds and recruit new members.

In the 1980s she qualified as an ASA teacher and became a regular pool side helper, and has always taken a particular interest in swimming for the disabled. Two years ago she became coordinator of the club’s learn to swim academy, and helped SOS gain swim21 accreditation.

She has mentored more than 30 new teachers, and has also taught hundreds of children to swim at local primary schools.
