Be it the little kids, Masters level swimmers or university-aged athletes, Laura Taylor is, as a coach, learning to adapt to each and give them just what they require.
Taylor, in her second year helping out the swim team at Memorial University of Newfoundland, earlier this week made the grade in the 2021-22 U Sports Female Apprentice Coach program. She was one of 18 women selected to the program, with the aim to increase the number of female coaches at Canadian universities.
“I think it’s awesome,” Taylor enthused. “It’s great that they’re bringing in women coaches and making a big deal of it. I’m grateful for being selected. I’ve been helping out with the university the past two years. Now I get to do a little bit more.”
