HEAD COACH





 

AIDEN


                Hi Gators! I am super excited to be returning to the the club as head coach for my third year with the club. This is my third year coaching for the Gators and I'm looking forward to this year the most! I've been swimming ever since I was 8 for a handful of different clubs including Red Deer Catalina Swim Club spending most of my years with the Lacombe Dolphins. I plan on using all my experience around the pool to help my swimmers achieve their own goals in doing the best they can

I I feel like I grew up in a pool. I have been involved in the competitive swimming world since I was 10 both as a swimmer and as a coach...I am now 23. I am looking forward to being part of the Gators' coaching team. This will be my 5th season with the club, and I am looking forward to watching the swimmers develop over the next 4 months. I have recently finished a Bachelors Degree in music at the Ambrose University in Calgary and will beheaded off to  lethbridge this fall to begin a 2 year B Ed Degree. In my other life I am a pianist, a composer, and a piano teacher. 

                        COACH NAOMI


This is my first summer coaching for Gators and I am looking forward to working with the other coaches and getting to know the swimmers. I swam competitively for eight years while I was in school and have coached for the past two winter seasons. First with the Ponoka Pool Sharks, and then as head coach of the Three Hills Neons. Teaching kids to swim and enjoy the water is something that I have really enjoyed and I am very happy to be able to continue to do over the summer.
            I am currently working towards my commercial pilots license through Prairie College and I get to start flying in the Fall. When I’m not working or doing school work I like to read, sew, play futsal, be outside, play my guitar or spend time with my family.

Hello, My name is Emily David. I’m 16 years old and super excited to be a Gators coach this season. I have been swimming with the Ponoka Gators for the past 9 years and was a volunteer coach with the club last year. In the off-season I figure skate, run cross country, play badminton, compete in track and field, and bake. My favourite thing about swimming is the competition of the sport as well as the family atmosphere in the Ponoka Gators Swim Club.

   I am very excited to be working with the Gators for the First time this summer. I have just finished my eleventh competitive swim season with the Ponoka Pool Sharks. I am in grade 11 currently and working at the pool  as a lifeguard and an instructor. I love to be in the water and teaching kids  to swim and have fun in the water s one of my favorite parts of my job. When I am not bogged down in homework I enjoy reading, baking, crafts, hiking and hanging out with family and friends. I hope to learn a lot from the coaches and the swimmers this swim season
