Alex Harrison (Dive London Aquatics Club/Merton School of Diving and Trampolining) has been involved in diving since he was 7 years old, firstly as a diver (diving up to National Age Groups) and then as a coach, official and volunteer. Starting out as an Assistant Coach at Merton School of Diving and Trampolining, Alex worked his way up to coaching his own squads up to National Age Group level competition before taking up employment with a pool operator delivering their Learn-to-Dive programmes across a number of leisure centres. In his spare time, Alex continued to coach for his Club and began to judge, referee, announce and record at a variety of competitions, including up to National Age Groups, and for two years was placed on the FINA Diving Official’s List. As a young person involved in sport volunteering, Alex has a passion for increasing and encouraging the pathways for young people to continue their aquatic journey through volunteering and took up a place as Chair of the ASA National Youth Forum for three years. Professionally, Alex works in the leisure centre industry as an Assistant Centre Manager.
