Jay London (Head Coach)

Coach

Email

Coach Jay attended his first swim meet at the age of 5, and went on to be nationally-ranked many years later. Jay has held several Provincial and Masters swim records and he was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. In 2013, Jay won a silver medal at the World Masters Games in Italy.

Jay’s coaching career began in 1985, and he has coached Age Group and Masters teams since then. Outside the pool, Jay enjoys scuba diving and skydiving, with his favourite thing being an auctioneer.

He looks forward to sharing his years of knowledge and experience with the team and other coaches this year.

Angela Bidinost (Assistant Coach)

Coach

Email

Angela Bidinost's love for the water started early, often finding herself either in it on on it. She began swimming at age 11 with the Dartmouth Crusaders, and has also had a prolific paddling and Dragon Boating career.

Angela holds numerous New Brunswick swimming records + a silver medal from the World Masters Games. She has also had success in canoe/kayak competitions at the national and international levels, and she has completed numerous triathlons and half-marathons. Angela holds a BA in Sociology from MSVU, her NCCP Level 2, and is also a certified Personal Fitness Trainer with Canfit Pro.

Alicia Forbes (NovaTech Coordinator)

Coach

Email

A former competitive swimmer with the Dartmouth Manta Rays, Alicia has been coaching since 2006. Alicia is a NCCP Level I certified coach and a graduate of Saint Mary’s University.

When she is not at the pool, she loves spending time with her dog Axel, an Australian Shepherd who competes in Rally and Agility events. Alicia and her husband are also celebrating the arrival of their first baby in August, which means that she'll be taking a break from full-time coaching this season. We still look forward to seeing her on our pool deck for visits and some coaching assistance throughout the season, however!
