Akeela Jundt Assistant Coach

 Akeela is from Estevan, Sask. and started swimming at the age of 5 with the Golden Eels. She started as an assistant coach around age 12, and naturally progressed throughout the years until she became the head coach of the Golden Eels. She held this position from 2010 to 2015. After that, Oxbow was in desperate need of a coach, so even though she was living in Saskatoon during the school year, she ended up coaching in Oxbow for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. This past summer, she was the head coach for the Saskatoon Sharks Summer Swim Club. She is a full-time teacher, as well as a Master Instructor Trainer for the Red Cross. She also is a volunteer coach for the Special Olympics swim team. 

Taylor Roufosse Assistant Coach

Taylor swam competitively in Saskatoon for six years prior to starting her coaching career.  Taylor's greatest accomplishments as a swimmer would be achieving Canadian Top 50 for the 09/10 season in 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, 50 backstroke, and 50 butterfly. Unfortunately her competitive career ended due to a shoulder injury. She started coaching Pool School with the Lasers not long after on a casual basis and now works with the JAG 1 group. Taylor is certified in the Swimming 101 Course and is excited to gain more experience in her future in competitive coaching.  She is currently pursuing a  Degree in Law at the University of Saskatchewan.
