Simone and Bill Evans have been proud operators of C-Me Swim School here in Cairns since April 2018. Bill has been involved with the swimming industry for most of his life and has been teaching and coaching for the past 30 years. 10 of those years were spent in the UK as Head Coach and Swimming Development Manager for the Harrogate Borough Council. This had him oversee the teaching curriculum across 5 pools which had in excess of 80 learn to swim teachers which delivered over 4,500 lessons per week. Bill also has provided swim training services and triathlon coaching to the Cairns triathlon community with Will Swim and Tri Coaching.
Simone holds a Bachelor of Science and a Diploma in Education and has been in the Education field for 15 years. She is from a competitive swimming background and has had success in masters Swimming and Triathlon in recent years. This background lead her to becoming accredited as a Swimming Teacher again and Triathlon Coach in 2014.
Their passion is the teaching and development of young people in and around the aquatic environment. Bill first started full time teaching at C-Me Swim back in 1995, so when the opportunity arose for them to take over C-Me Swim as the new Directors, it was perfect timing for them as a family. They love growing and developing the family business further and running the business from home, with their 3 children. Bill and Simone understand the juggling act of having a small business and a family, living on site and being chief bubble blowers, cleaners, HR managers, accountants and everything in between.
