Hi, I'm Coach Irene

Certified Swim Teacher and Coach

I learned to swim from a young age and joined the local swim club when I was 5. I fell in love with the sport and made it to the Dutch Championships in the 100 & 50 Backstroke. I also started coaching the younger squad kids when I was a teenager and realised it's my passion to share my love for swimming!

What People Say

Alan Hatcher

Irene is simply one of the best coaches I have worked with. At my age it was difficult to get back into competitive swimming (triathlon) but she was superb. Gave me more confidence and I am looking forward to the swim squads rather than dreading them.

Bridget Greensill

What is there not to love about Swimfit? Irene (the most amazing coach) has taken me from a level that I thought was acceptable to competing at a level I never thought I would achieve. Her kindness, support and magical ability to renew my love of swimming is out of this world!  Our Swimfit group are the most amazing group of friends and welcome ANYONE and ANY ability.

Clare Zapalla

I went from smashing myself in the pool and standing still with my swim times (approx 40mins for the 70.3 distance) to swimming smoother, stronger and more in control of my swim - in the space of 3 months, Irene took me to a 34min swim at Geelong 70.3 last year, which was an enormous PB for me!


I cannot speak highly enough of her passion, professionalism, approachability and knowledge, particularly with open-water swimming. She has literally changed the game of swimming for me and I am so grateful.
