We are excited to announce the newest addition to our team here at Balmy Beach Canoe Club - Hunter George, our new Head Coach! Hunter will be joining us on Monday April 3rd, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him onboard.
Hunter’s love for Canoe/Kayak began at a young age when he was a canoe kids camper at the age of 10. Since then, he has become an accomplished paddler with an impressive 21 National Championship Gold Medals and two National War Canoe records as Captain to his credit. Many of our paddlers have had the opportunity to work with Hunter during Ontario Training Camps, and we are excited to have him join us as our Head Coach.
Hunter has spent the past 10 years coaching full time at Burloak Canoe Club, where he built a reputation as a community builder and an inclusive sports advocate. In addition to his coaching expertise, Hunter is also a Certified Yoga Teacher. Along with his partner, Mike, they are in the process of moving to the Beach neighbourhood, becoming an integral part of our community.
As we prepare for the upcoming season, we are confident that Hunter’s passion and dedication to the sport will inspire our paddlers to reach new heights. We are thrilled to have him onboard and believe that he will be a valuable addition to our team.
To kick off the season and introduce Hunter to our members, we will be hosting a Meet the Head Coach event on Sunday April 16th at the Main Club from 2pm - 4pm. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet Hunter and his team, and hear him speak about his coaching philosophy and his plans for the upcoming season.
Please join us in welcoming Hunter to the Beach team, and let’s make this season our best yet!
