During November, following a competitive recruitment process it was announced that Dave Cowen has been appointed to the position of Assistant Diving Coach on a permanent basis. David is well known to the club having himself represented the COBE as a competitive diver and previously having had responsibility for coaching some of our youngsters.
It is clear that the members of the club have an enormous amount of respect for Dave and his proven ability to work effectively with the divers to enhance their skills and drive enthusiasm.
From a club perspective we are sure that the coaching combination of Joe and Dave will prove to be extremely effective and bringing extra resource and stability to the clubs operations. Dave’s appointment will serve as a huge boost to Head Coach Joe who has done a tremendous job holding the fort whilst without a permanent Deputy Coach in situ.
On behalf of COBE divers, parents, the committee and fellow club coaches we’d like to officially congratulate Dave on his appointment and look forward to Joe and Dave working closely together to drive the club forward. Based upon the performances at the recent Irish Open in Dublin the new coaching duo of Meszaros and Cowen is already bringing resounding success!!
