This is Renate's 9th year with the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club. 
Renate has a Bachelor degree in Physical Education, is a Certified NCCP Level 2 Swim Coach and is currently a Trained Swimming Senior Coach.

Tara Taylor - Assistant Head Coach - Tier 2 and 3

Tara is an NCCP Level 1 (working on level 2) coach with a background in Kinesiology and Psychology.  She was a member of the 2000 Canadian Olympic Team and a competitive swimmer for seventeen years.  Tara believes a strong technical background, hard work, and fun lead to a successful season.  

Amy Melvin - Assistant Coach - Tier 4

Amy was raised in Vernon and swam with the Vernon Kokanees for 10 years. She has been involved in the aquatic world since 1994, and has also worked with children with learning and physical disabilities. 
In 2003 Amy moved back from Vancouver to further pursue her aquatic career. 
In 2009 she gladly took on the role of the grassroots swim coach to bring it all back to were her love for competitive swimming all began. Amy is a certified Swimming Fundamentals Coach and is looking forward in further strengthening her coaching skills.
