Ken Warren (Head Coach, National Development Squad)


Ken took up coaching for Hoppers Crossing Swimming Club back in 2004 and progressed to the Head Coach in 2005. Ken’s coaching philosophy is based around developing a positive and supportive culture within the club. He believes that his role is to foster an enjoyable environment where swimmers strive to become not only the best they can be in the pool but along the way also develop skills that will enable them to be successful out of the pool.


Ken has coached swimmers to achieve:


  • Open National Medallists and Finalists (both long and short course)
  • Age National Medallists and Finalists (both long and short course)
  • National Junior Team Representative at the Trans-Tasman Championships
  • State Team Representative at the School Pacific Games for Butterfly and Backstroke
  • Victorian State Team representatives
  • Victorian Age Medallists, Finalists, and State Champions
  • Victorian State record holders


Ken prides himself in seeing our swimmers achieve their goals and most of all enjoy the sport of swimming. Ken's favourite saying to all our swimmers is 'Your Goal is my Challenge'.
