Dear Swimmers and Parents,

We have a great opportunity to host Janusz Kaczmarek in Whitehorse between 30th October and 2nd November 2015. Janusz comes to Yukon to share his knowledge with our swimmers and coaches.

In 2013 coach Janusz was named the Canadian Youth Coach of the Year. His swimmer, Emily Overholt, is well known along our Glacier Bears athletes. Emily, while coached by Janusz, broke the Junior World Record in 400 IM. Emily was named Canadian Youth Swimmer of the Year in 2013.

In 2013 Swim BC named Janusz the Youth Coach of the Year and in 2014 Janusz won as a Junior Coach of the Year in BC.

In the past Janusz’s swimmers have won gold medals in the European Championships, placed in finals in the Olympics and captured gold medals and established a world record time in the Para-Olympics.
