After a month of experiencing a few different facilities in Burnaby, Richmond and Vancouver we are back at the UBC Aquatic Center!
We are now on our regular summer schedule:
- Tuesday/Thursday - 7:00 to 8:00pm
- Saturday/Sunday - 5:00 to 6:30pm
As many of you may know, our head coach Mitch is enrolled in the Physiotherapy program at UBC and has gone up to Trail, BC to do the first part of a series of practicums. He'll be gone for the next few months and we won't see him back at the pool until later in the summer. We wish him well on his first set of practicums. While Mitch is gone, Anton has agreed to step up and take on the head coaching duties, which we are very pleased about.
Please welcome Anton as our interim head coach. He will be checking the coach@ubcmasters e-mail address if you need to contact him directly.
The UBC Masters swim club's practices are run by our Head Coach Mitchell Bourne.
Mitchell comes to us with years of swim coaching experience, including completion of his Level 2 from the National Coaching Certification program.
Additionally Mitchell has a degree in kinesiology from UBC and works as a personal trainer.
The UBC Masters Swim Club is a non-profit organization with a volunteer board of directors. Members can participate in coach run swim practices, organized by our head coach Mitchell Bourne, as often as five days per week in the fall and winter and four times in the summer. Our members are a diverse group of students, academics, professionals and retirees whose interests range from simply participating in occasional swim workouts to members who use it as the foundation for organized competition.
Please peruse through our website for more information about our club and swimming in British Columbia.
