 MEET THE COACHES!

 

Kristie Stewart

   

Coach K is the Mom of the team, especially for our newest swimmers in our Nova Tech program. Her swimming career started with the Yarmouth Whitecaps and then with the Dalhousie Tigers. Historical records showed she enjoyed the sprints.

Her first stint coaching with the Mariners ran from 2003-2007 then she returned to the pool deck in 2013.          

 

Graham MacLeod          

  

Coach Graham grew up a lifetime ago, swimming in the GYRO swim programs during the summer at Melmerby Beach, and swimming and teaching swim lessons at the old YMCA in New Glasgow.

His coaching career began in 1986 when his brother's elementary basketball team needed a coach. He coached soccer, hockey and softball before finding his favorite coaching role-swimming.

Coach Graham continues to try to improve to enhance each swimmer's pool experience. His favorite coaching experience is when he witnesses a swimmer accomplish a new milestone, even if it is his daughter!

 

 Ed Stewart  

  

Coach Ed started swimming competitively in 1982 with a summer swim team in Quebec. He swam with the Age Group program of the Cape Breton Dorados from 1982-1993 and later swam for the Dalhousie Tigers from 1993-1997.   

His coaching career started in high school working with the Novice squad of the Cape Breton Dorados. Coach Ed began coaching with the Mariners in 2004. When not on the pool deck, he can be found teaching Science at North Nova Education Centre in New Glasgow.
