As a swimmer of the Fort McMurray Swim Club at its inception over 40 years ago, there is a big place in my heart for the clubs continued success and accomplishment. I was blessed with great coaches when I swam to National level and am so excited to be coaching the Mini Mantas this year and helping Coach Jo take over the Manta Swim School. My philosophy is to coach swimmers to work and play in a fair manner, to help them set and work hard to achieve challenging goals, and to do THEIR best and BE their best in everything they do.

MANTA Swim School Coordinator

Coach Jo is in her second year as the swim school coordinator.  Coach Jo is no stranger to the pool.  She was a competitive swimmer for 12 years and her favorite race was the 200 fly!!! She then went on to coach for 20 years in Kitimat, BC prior to moving to Fort McMurray.   Coach Jo passed on her love for swimming to her children, with all 3 children participating in competitive swimming, one at the national level.  Coach Jo is well versed in the life of a swimming parent!!

Coach Jo's goal for the MSS program is to inspire in all the kids a great love for the sport of swimming.  But not just the sport.......... also the sportsmanship, teamplay and the friendships that will last for years.  Lessons learned in the pool can be put into your every day life.  You can succeed at anything you try, it only takes a little hard work and its a lot of fun along the way.   

Coach Jo can not wait to get to know all of her little swimmers again this year.
