Hi everyone, my name is Ireland Choquette and I can’t wait to join this season’s coaching staff! I’ve been a member of Cruisers for five years and volunteer coached for the past three. I am looking forward to returning for my sixth year as a Group one coach. I have completed both my Bronze medallion and Bronze cross lifesaving courses as well as the NCCP swimming 101 course. Throughout my years with cruisers I’ve participated in swimming, water polo and a little bit of diving. I loved water polo so much the I joined Pacific Storm to play more competitively and was on the U14 2016 and 2017 Western National Championship team. My passion for training lead me to winter swimming and I am now swimming competitively with Chena. During my years of swimming I’ve had amazing coaches, made many new friends and learnt countless valuable lessons. I am looking forward to passing on what I’ve gained from Cruisers to this season’s swimmers.
I’ll see you all on the pool deck!
