CHENA Swim Club is pleased to announce that it has hired a new head coach for its competitive swim program for the 2020-2021 season. Effective immediately, Vincent Chung will assume the role of Head Coach of the club. Vincent previously served as the Senior Assistant Coach.
President Eddie Simard stated “CHENA is thrilled to promote Vincent to the role of Head Coach. Vincent has been a very important part of CHENA Swim Club for the last 4 years and most recently, instrumental in adapting the organization’s program while pools were closed due to COVID-19. He consistently delivered virtual training and online content for the last 6 months, while remaining committed to CHENA’s philosophy and approach. The program was well received by families who were thankful for the continued engagement and athlete development during a difficult period. As we transition into the 2020/21 season, Vincent is already proving enormous value. He’s confidently meeting the requirements of his new role and offering great ideas that are helping to propel us forward.”
Previous Head Coach Patrick Paradis commented: “The CHENA program has grown so much over the last 10 years and many coaches, swimmers and volunteers have contributed to building our CHENA family. It was incredibly hard to leave CHENA but knowing that Vincent will be leading the program moving forward makes me feel both comforted and extremely excited for the future of the program through his vision and guidance. CHENA is in good hands”.
Technical Director Swim BC, Cory Beatt provided the following statement: “I have had the pleasure of knowing Vincent for many years. Vincent is caring, intelligent, articulate, and thoughtful. These characteristics have earned Vincent the respect from many in our swimming community, myself included. We are lucky that Vincent has chosen coaching swimming as his profession. The CHENA Swim Club is lucky to have Vincent; both the club and SwimBC will benefit from his expertise. I look forward to working with Vincent and celebrating his many success with him in the months and years ahead”.
