PacificSport honours Swim coach

Reg Shaw named Fraser Valley region's Coach of the Year

Swim coach Reg Shaw was recently presented a Coach of the Year award at PacificSport Fraser Valley’s Annual General Meeting and Sport Recognition Awards event in Langley. The annual awards, now in its 8th year, identify and celebrate athletes, coaches, volunteers and builders who have set the bar high in terms of their achievements and contributions to sport in the Fraser Valley.

Shaw joined the Surrey Knights Swim Club in 2009, and para-swimming athletes from the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island soon followed. Three of these athletes earned five gold medals at the 2011 Para Can-Am Championships in July.

Shaw was one of four individuals honoured.

“I’m pleased we can give some much-deserved recognition to these individuals who are quietly advancing the quality and level of sport in our region,” said Linda Palm, PacificSport general manager. “A guiding philosophy for PacificSport is that it ‘takes a community to build a champion’. With a sport community so rich with individuals like our Recognition Award recipients, it’s not at all surprising we have such a wealth of high performance athletes, current and future champions, here in the Fraser Valley.”
