Director of Communications and Coach: Peter Fairman 

-
Peter is kinesiology student with a strong passion for promoting physical activity at a grass roots level. Having worked with children in aquatics for over 5 years, Peter has developed multiple coaching strategies to ensure each child thrives in the water. Outside the pool, Peter loves to play volleyball, walk his dog, and play on photoshop.
-
"Many people focus on the physical benefits of participating in sport, but I personally enjoy the social aspect. Being able to interact with your community through physical activity bulids a connection that can't be found in a classroom. I am very grateful to be apart of a team that allows me to build these connections."
