New Coaching & Swim Group Structure - Announcement

New Coaching & Swim Group Structure - Announcement July 2018


To All Newmarket Stingray Swim Families & Swimmers: 

As you may be aware, we have two Swim Coach vacancies within the Club, and have been conducting a search to retain coaches that not only align with our Swim Club values, but compliment the existing coaching team. I am pleased to announce one of the successful candidates, Edit Varga, who will begin coaching the AG1 and AG2 swim groups with the Newmarket Stingrays Swim Club, effective September 1, 2018. Edit most recently worked with the Ducks Swimming Club in Aurora, where she assumed the role of Head Age Group Coach. Edit’s bio is attached for your review. With the appointment of Edit, the Club will revert back to our previous swim group structure. The swim groups and coaching staff are outlined below. The 2018/2019 swim practice schedule (according to the grouping below) is also available on the website. 

  • National Senior and Senior - Alan Swanston 
  • AG1 and AG2 - Edit Varga (please click for Edit's Bio)
  • AG3 and AG4 - Mackenzie Salmon
  • AG5, DEV 1 and DEV 2 - Sam Shalovsky
  • Splashing Up - Mackenzie Salmon 
  • Splash - TBD 

We are continuing our search to identify the Splash Coach. Once a Coach has been confirmed, details will follow. We are confident that both the swim structure and coaching additions will set us up for a successful swim season next year. Please join me in welcoming Edit to the Newmarket Stingrays Club.
