Colin’s love for trampolining began at the age of 14 in a local youth club. After just a few years he began to compete in the North West Region and was on form. He went on to compete at National and Youth International level.
Colin traveled around the country enabling him to train at the best clubs with the best performers, some of who are familiar names at the top of trampolining competition circuit as high performance coaches today. During this time Colin gained his own coaching qualifications.
As family life took over trampolining took a back seat for a while but returned with a vengeance in latter years. Due to the changes within the sport and of the equipment used, Colin acquired his coaching qualifications once again as a coach in 1995 and senior club coach in 2004.
The family moved to Preston owing to Colin’s work commitments in 2002. As with any place Colin lives in, or even merely visits, his first port of call was to locate a trampolining club. He found these to be over-subscribed with incredibly long waiting lists. The seed for founding his own club was planted. Preston City Trampoline Club has gone on to be a successful recreational and competitive club.
