Our Coaches

Senior Performance - Ken Anderson

I started teaching swimming on the banks of the Ottawa river in the early 80's. Swimming competitively on and off throughout high school I swam for Western and McMaster while going to school.  As part of my Physical Education degree, a coaching course required me to volunteer with a high school team and the McMaster Varsity team. At the time I was lucky to work under Gaye Stratten while he was coaching 3 time Olympian (and wonderful human being) Joanne Malar and Brian Bond as he was running the most successful 14 and under program in the country.

I was hooked on coaching and after 2 years on my own as a head coach in Kirkland Lake, I finished my degree and have been a full-time head coach since 1991. After stops in Perth and Peterborough, I have been the head coach at KBM since September of 1999.

Through the sport of swimming, I do my best to support athletes as they take responsibility for their own healthy, happy, successful lives. It is always exciting to watch athletes achieve new levels of success, whether it be making a regional qualifying time or competing on the international stage. I now find it fulfilling to talk to former swimmers who have found their niche in life and say "I remember when you told me.......)   

It is a privilege to make a living as a coach. I appreciate the level of trust swimmers and parents have shown me as I continue to develop as a coach and person. 

Junior Performance - Carla Ingimundson

Moving to Kingston in the 80’s, I was a KBM swimmer in my last year of high school. I attended Carleton University before returning to Kingston to pursue my family’s business. When my children, Paul and Lee, showed an interest and affinity for swimming, I started volunteering as a coach with KBM. Now in my 13th year with KBM, I am NCCP level 2 trained, and have a passion for helping swimmers grow both in and out of the pool. My philosophy is to help all swimmers enjoy the sport, embrace challenges and seek improvement from within. Competition and standards will come and go but self improvement, willingness to work, time management, team support and personal responsibility are life skills that can be learned in the water and carried through life.
