Besides myself being new this year, I am please to introduce to you this year’s newest members of the MAC coaching staff; Ahmed Shenawi and Hazem Sayed

Ahmed Shenawi has been coaching since 2001 where he started his coaching career with the Egyptian Armed Forces Club and remained there until 2009. From 2013-2018, Ahmed was hired as a Developmental Coach with the Scarborough Swim Club where he was loved by his swimmers and was instrumental in helping SCAR rebuild its developmental system. I am happy to be reunited with Ahmed here at MAC.

Also joining MAC this year as our new Discovery Coach and S2A Coordinator is Hazem Sayed. Hazem, like Ahmed is also from Egypt. Hazem has over 15 years of coaching experience coaching in both Egypt, UAE and Canada. Hazem’s experience with running large learn to swim programs has made him the ideal choice as S2A Coordinator and Discovery coach.

I am looking forward to working with all the MAC coaches this year and believe that we have assembled a unique group of highly qualified individuals that can work together to ensure that all MAC swimmers reach their highest potential.

Thank you,

Darren Ward, OLY

Head Coach
