New Full-Time Head Coach!

posted Dec 31, 2014, 2:36 PM by System Administrator

The Board of the Richmond Hill Canoe Club is thrilled to announce that Helen Savin has accepted the full-time Head Coach position. 

This decision was made after careful consideration of the Club's current status, membership and finances as well as the Club's goals and future potential. 

As you may know, Helen has been a part-time coach with the Club and has dedicated a tremendous amount of time and energy to the program and athletes on top of another full-time job. We are in awe of her energy and ability to  juggle so many commitments, but are very pleased for Helen that she can now pursue her passion for coaching full time. 

Helen brings an incredible wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise to this position. Our "little" Club is incredibly fortunate to have a coach of this caliber. If you have not had a chance to read about Helen, please check out this link:

 Helen has already had a remarkable impact on the Club over the last several months. The club membership has grown, the quality of our training has improved, we have attended more regattas and our paddlers have reached new heights in their racing success. And this is just the beginning! 

Please join us in thanking Helen and congratulating her on this new position.

 Helen will begin full time on January 1st, 2015.

 Please note that Helen will be on vacation as of the end of practices on Saturday, December 20th until Monday, January 5th. If you need to speak to her, please do so before or after those dates.
