Pascal St-Pierre Technical Director Swim Manitoba
After almost five seasons with Swim Manitoba, Pascal St-Pierre has accepted a new and exciting position with Sport Manitoba!
Over the course of Pascal’s time at Swim Manitoba, he was instrumental in providing new training and opportunities for up-and-coming as well as established swim coaches in Manitoba. The results of these initiatives will continue to further enhance the development of Manitoba’s swimmers for years to come.
The organization would like to especially thank Pascal for his contributions and assistance in the COVID ‘Return to Play’ plan that was instrumental in assisting the swim community to return safely back to the pool.
On behalf of Swim Manitoba’s community, past and present board, and staff, thank you so much Pascal! Best wishes and much success in your new position with Sport Manitoba. Meilleurs vœux et beaucoup de succès dans votre nouveau poste avec Sport Manitoba!
