    I am a keen sportsman and all my life I have been involved in all kinds of sports. My biggest passion is swimming and I am an ex-champion Bulgarian swimmer. I am a level 3 ASCA and level 2 STA swimming teacher and coach. Being head coach of St. Christopher's school swimming team is an amazing opportunity for me to pass on my experience and knowledge to all the students.

    Simon Bourner

    I have been a Level 3 Tennis Coach for 8 years and I am very passionate about the sport. I played at a national club level and managed a Junior Tennis Programme at David Lloyd in Exeter before coming to Bahrain. I am also a keen fitness enthusiast and enjoy working as a Level 2 Fitness Instructor. I currently run adult circuit training sessions within the school. I love my job, as I get to see people I coach improving all the time. I believe that anyone can do well in sport if they have a growth mindset. "Every pro was once an amateur. Every expert was once a beginner. So dream big and start now."

    I am very passionate about dance and gymnastics, as I have been dancing from such a young age myself. I adored it that much I’ve been teaching various styles of dance for the past 4 years and have completed a National Diploma in Dance, not a day goes by I don’t enjoy what I do, working with children, building their confidence and seeing a smile on their face. I am also a Level 2 qualified swimming teacher and keen to promote gymnastics with Sparta.
