Greg Rasmussen

Coach

Email

Greg has been involved with swimming for most of his life, having swam with Musac for 8 years and then 5 years in university at both Queens and Dalhousie.  Retired in 1995 Greg took 10 years completely away from swimming and the pool.  Returning simply to help out for a few weeks Greg got hooked on the sport again. Over the past 7 years he has coached at various levels including minnows, white, red, senior and masters.  It is still questionable whether Greg enjoys coaching more from in the water or out, but it’s certain he enjoys helping, teaching and encouraging the kids!
