Kirby Feng - Speed Swimming Coach
Hello! My name is Kirby Feng, and this is my third season returning to Nova Artistic Swimming as the speed swimming coach. I have been involved in competitive swimming for 39 years and been coaching in Alberta since 1998. I have coached at all levels of swimming from high school to summer club to year-round swimming, and have worked with synchro swimmers, triathletes and open water swimmers as well. I am certified as a Level 2 Coach with Swim Canada, Skills Coach and for the past 14 years been a Learning Facilitator for Swim Canada teaching coaches how to coach. I believe in Safety First - keeping our athletes healthy through proper swim technique, and FUN second - as I find that athletes who have fun stay in sport longer! It is my privilege to return to Nova Artistic Swimming to work with all the amazing athletes and coaches again! :)
