2023 Summer Swim Program Coordinator
Hi I'm Kendall Reimer, I am the Summer Swim Program Coordinator for this year! I come from Steinbach and have been very involved with competitive swimming for the last 11 years. I swam with the Steinbach Skimmers for 7 years and have been coaching with them for the last 4. I love swimming and I am so excited to continue with it throughout the summer. I can't wait to get into everything this program has to offer, looking forward to seeing you all this summer!
