COACHES
 

RACHEL WOOD - Head Coach

I grew up on Vancouver Island and have been swimming in BCSSA since I was 7 years old. I have been coaching for 8 years all over B.C., and my favourite thing about coaching is getting to know the swimmers and watching them reach their goals during competition. I'm currently in my final year working towards my degree in Journalism, Public Relations and Communications. If you see me at the pool say hi!

 




 

BRANDON de COSTA - C/O Head Coach

Hey, Super Sharks! I am beyond excited to be coaching my second year with the Super Sharks. I have been coaching for 9 years and was a competitive swimmer for 14 years. My swimming career started in summer swimming then evolved into winter swimming. I won gold at both Western Canadian Championships and at the Age Group Championships in backstroke. I also loved to swim every other stroke as well. I am really excited to have an amazing summer filled with hard work and fun swimming. I am approachable with any further questions you may have! Hope to see you on the pool deck. :)

 

 




 

TRAVIS KAM - Assistant Coach

Hey everyone!! I am back for my third season coaching with Super Sharks and I am very excited to be able to coach such a wonderful club. I started my days of swimming back in 2003 with the Vancouver Vikings and later with Super Sharks. In 2006 I began my winter swimming career with the Canadian Dolphins Swim Club and SFU Varsity team in 2012. I have attended numerous national and international level swim meets, while being able to bring home medals from all Age group nationals since 2008 and onwards. I have coached the Canadian Dolphins for one season so far and have also had the opportunity to attend the 2014-2015 Youth/Junior Swim BC Provincial camp as a coach. I honestly believe that every swimmer can become great, as long as they are willing to understand and commit to an elite swimming lifestyle. I hope through my many years of knowledge in swimming, I can embark my swimmers on a voyage of excellence with a boatload of fun.

 




 

JESSICA ZHOU - Assistant Coach

Hi everyone! This will be my second year coaching with the Super Sharks. I have been swimming with the club for 9 years. With the experience in the club I have learned that sportsmanship and teamwork is just as important as swimming as an individual. My goal is to be able to pick up skills, have fun and make even more memories as a coach. So let's strive for the best this season and don't stop until we get there.

 




 

ARTHUR LEE - Assistant Coach

Hey everyone! This will be my first season coaching with the Super Sharks. I have been swimming with the club for over 10 years and have made everlasting memories and friendships. Throughout the many years of swimming I have learned that dedication and determination is a key part in becoming a phenomenal swimmer. My goal is to teach and improve the techniques of each swimmer, while also having fun.
