Darryl Rudolf is in his thirds year with PSW. Darryl has
been coaching for over 10 years with experience at VPSC, Chena Swim
Club and most recently the Campbell River Killer Whales.
Before becoming a coach, Darryl had some success as a swimmer on
the International stage, winning the 100 m butterfly at the 2007
FISU Games as well as swimming on the National Team with UBC.
He believes that his passion for swimming and racing has helped
shape him into the person he is today. Darryl was taught by some of
the best coaches in the country which he attributes to his success
as a swimmer but more importantly, he feels that they taught him
what it takes to become a great coach. Before coming to PSW, Darryl
was Head Coach for the Campbell River Killer Whales. In his
last year at CRKW, the club had it best outings at both provincials
and age group nationals in club history. Now at PSW, Darryl has
seen the club move into a new facility, grow to almost twice the
size and achieve a great level of success at all levels of
competition from LMR’s through to Senior Nationals.
Darryl is looking forward to watching PSW grow not only in
membership but in culture as well as success in the years to come.

"I believe the our job as a coach is to help our young athletes to develop into the best version of themselves. We hope that they will develop into exceptional individuals during their time with the club, and during their journey will also reach all their goals as an athlete. I try to teach the swimmers that working hard and doing the work can be an exciting and fun process, which will help with their development in all areas of their life."
