Coach Elizabeth Gendron – Bio

As a dedicated swimmer and experienced coach with a passion for swimming, I am thrilled to bring my ten plus years of competitive swimming experience and coaching expertise to the team.  I swam for the Nepean Kanata Barracudas in eastern Ontario and coached for them as well. My journey through the world of swimming has equipped me with the knowledge, skillset, and enthusiasm to inspire swimmers of all levels to reach their fullest potential.

I have been privileged to lead and mentor swimmers of all ages and skill levels in. My coaching philosophy is rooted in fostering a holistic approach that encompasses technique refinement, mental strength development, and a supportive team environment. Through my guidance, I have witnessed swimmers achieve personal bests, overcome challenges, and cultivate a lifelong love for the sport.

I am excited about the opportunity to bring my wealth of experience, coaching techniques, and dedication to the team.
