Fitness & Conditioning Coach

My name is Misha Young, and I’m so happy to be back at the pool for another season! I am going into my 7th year coaching, and I'm very excited to be working with our Development groups this year!

I began coaching at Esquimalt rec. Center, with West Shore Aquatic Club and loved every minute of it. I love encouraging our young athletes to develop the same love for swimming I have, and sport in general! Working side by side with the other amazing coaches keeps me learning everyday, and always pushes me to do my best!

Even though I’ve retired from swimming myself, I've kept my love for sport alive by adopting an interest in triathalon, and have worked my way up to competing at Ironman 70.3 Worlds. I am currently on training to represent Canada at the World Triathalon Chapionships. When I'm not actively coaching or training, I am busy capturing photos, if you see me with my camera, smile!
