Paul Dowey

We are very excited to announce that Paul Dowey, Auckland based HPK Head Coach, is commencing with Ace as our Director of Coaching on Monday 18th September.

We are really looking forward to having Paul lead our coaching program. He has tremendous skills and knowledge, with a real genuine enthusiasm of getting the best out of  swimmers of whatever age in a fun way. Paul is looking forward to the challenges and expectations ahead with Ace; he knows the Club’s history and is excited that he will be a part of it. Paul comes to us from leading a team of 11 coaches at HPK, with the Club regularly ranked within the top 3 for NZ. His passion for swim coaching is spread over nearly 20 years, with success being demonstrated many times, such as personally training over 25 swimmers who have exceeded 600 FINA in the last three years. Another success was his coaching in Wales, having 44 athletes on the Welsh Development Teams collecting 117 medals at the Welsh Age Group level, with 8 becoming Welsh Age Group Champions.

Paul is looking forward to being part of the Hamilton community and will bring with him his wife and two children.
