Christine Guerriero Coach

Christine has been involved in the competitive swimming world for many years. First as a swimmer with the Scarborough Swim Club where she competed at the senior national level swimming at meets across Canada, the USA and attended training camps in places such as Texas and Barbados. Next, Christine swam as part of the Brock University team and continued to perform well both provincially and nationally. She began coaching while at Scarborough Swim Club in the Olympic Way program ushering in the club’s youngest swimmers. It has been exciting for Christine to be able to continue introducing children to the sport she loves by coaching MUSAC’s Minnows program for the past 6 years! 

Greg Rasmussen Coach

Greg has been involved with swimming for most of his life, having swam with Musac for 8 years and then 5 years in university at both Queens and Dalhousie.  Retired in 1995 Greg took 10 years completely away from swimming and the pool.  Returning simply to help out for a few weeks Greg got hooked on the sport again. Over the past 7 years he has coached at various levels including minnows, white, red, senior and masters.  It is still questionable whether Greg enjoys coaching more from in the water or out, but it’s certain he enjoys helping, teaching and encouraging the kids!

Kyoka Stone Coach
Kyoka is a former MUSAC swimmer. During her time with MUSAC Kyoka swam competitively for 7 years, competing at a Provincial and National level. She had several events where she ranked top 5 in Canada for her age group. Kyoka feels that swimming is a great sport to be a part of. She appreciates the sport's competitive nature which teaches athletes to give their all individually while in a team environment. It is because of this, that after leaving the competitive stream Kyoka came back to coach. 2018 will be her 3rd year coaching for the club and she is currently NCCP Level 1 in Training. She loves not only getting to see all of the athletes improve as swimmers over the year but also grow as individuals.
