Brian trains 5 days a week at Byron Bay Pool and also volunteers with the Byron Bay Swim Club which has just celebrated it's 50th year.
"We would like to acknowledge the huge achievements of the local swimming heroes in their dedication and efforts to represent their schools and their Region at State level,” Byron Bay Swim Club's Helen Buckley said. "This takes commitment not only from the swimmers but from Brian as their coach.
"For some of these lads it will be 6 years of competition at State Level and they thank their coach for being there every step of the way.
"And its a great way to get fit and have fun with your friends.”
