MEET YOUR COACHES
WHAT MAKES A WRASA COACH?
WRASA takes tremendous pride in our coaching staff. We believe we have cultivated one of the strongest and most dedicated coaching teams in BC Summer Swimming.
We can back up this bold claim because our coaches are also top competitors in swimming and other sports as well. They know how to coach because they know how to compete!
As you might have guessed, it's not easy to be selected as a WRASA coach.
In addition to being outstanding athletes, every WRASA coach brings their own impressive set of credentials. They are certified through NCCP National Coaching levels, water safety instruction, first aid and life-saving training. They've also distinguished themselves inside WRASA (such as the Senior Leadership program) or have been selected for their exceptional technical skill from many outside applicants.
Many WRASA coaches begin as WRASA swimmers and spend a few years in the WRASA Senior Leader Program learning to the basics of coaching, organizing and leading.
So, now, let's meet them!
