Coach Jim has been coaching for the last 13 years and is entering his third season as the Head Coach of the Campbell River Killer Whales.  He started his coaching career in the BCSSA coaching teams in the Vancouver area before moving into year round swimming.  He first went to be the assistant coach with the UBC Dolphins age group program which saw four swimmers onto the Junior National team with two of those swimmers continuing on to the Senior National team, he then moved to the Chena Swim Club as their Senior Assistant Head coach and played a pivotal role in the team rising through the provincial standings and winning the Provincial Championships in 2013.  Through these roles he has seen his swimmers achieve their goals at every level of the sport and numerous swimmers through to Provincial and National records.Coach Jim believes that the skills, discipline, and work ethic gained through the sport of swimming show our youth a pathway to becoming responsible adults and these ideals carry through to a life beyond sport.  He also believes that every athlete can reach their goals if they are willing to put in the work needed consistently, day to day, month to month, and year to year.
