Erin Cameron - Group 0 / Head Coach
My name is Erin Cameron (previously Swainson). I am thrilled to be back with the Tritons this year as Head Coach.
I grew up swimming summer club for over 9 seasons with the Fort Saskatchewan Piranhas and the Edmonton Huma Swim Club. From there, I went to the University of Victoria and swam with the varsity swim club. Following my move back to Edmonton, to finish my degree at the University of Alberta, I swam with the Golden Bears and Pandas. In my final year, I was the women’s team captain. During my time with the Pandas, I was lucky enough to qualify multiple times for both the Canada West Championships and the CIAU National Championships.
I started coaching with the Edmonton Huma Swim Club when I was 16 and continued to coach for eight more years with the club, moving my way up until I became the head coach for the club. During this time, I also started coaching with the Edmonton Keyano Swim Club and coached both junior and senior groups before deciding to “retire” the year I got married (to another swimmer – Brett Cameron).
Swimming has been an integral part of my life and that for my family. I am overjoyed to be able to share again in the development of our young Tritons and share the swimming experience with my family. Although it is my third year coaching with the Tritons, it is our families sixth year with the club, as we have three children swimming with the team.
Let’s Go Tritons!
Jacob JuBenvill - group 1
My name is Jacob Jubenvill and I am incredibly excited to be working with the Tritons this year! I just finished my first year at the University of Alberta and will be entering the business program this fall.
In terms of my past experience with swimming, I swam from the ages of five to 18 with the Cascade Swim Club. I was part of their high-performance group from age 11 to 18 and had many incredible opportunities to travel and learn from a plethora of other high level swimmers. I have competed in Germany, California and almost every major Canadian city, which has been absolutely amazing.
I was previously an individual medley-based swimmer although I could never really get my freestyle right (despite the best efforts of my coaches).
Although my time in the water has come to an end, I am still super thrilled to be able to continue to be a part of the swimming community through coaching.
I am looking forward to having an amazing season with all of you!
olivia LaLonde - Group 2
My name is Olivia Lalonde and I am very excited to be back with the Tritons for another swim season!
I have been swimming competitively for 10 years with the Calgary Patriots. Swimming has been part of my life for many years and I’m so happy that I am able to help young swimmers love the sport as much as I do!
I have coached for the P-too program for three years and I have started working with the Patriots as an assistant coach this year.
My goal as a coach is to help swimmers with their technique, build good life and team skills and the most important of all - to have fun.
One of the most rewarding things I have received from swimming is the friendships I have created over the years. I don’t just consider us a team, I consider us a family that will do anything for each other. It is so rewarding to see young swimmers create great friendships while growing their strength in the pool.
I am so excited for another great summer with the Tritons and cannot wait for all the awesome swimming I will get to see!
Celina glabus - Group 3
My name is Celina Glabus and I am thrilled to be working with the Tritons! This is my second season with the team and I am looking forward to working with Group 3.
I grew up swimming with the Foothills Stingrays and finished in high school after swimming for seven seasons. After retiring from competition, I started coaching for the Stingrays, Nanaimo White Water Rapids and I was Head Coach for the Penticton Pikes Summer Swim Club for two seasons.
I will complete my Bachelor’s Degree in June and plan on attending Law School in 2020.
Swimming has provided me with some incredible opportunities in and out of the water. I am looking forward to working with new and returning swimmers as well as my fellow coaches!
See you on the pool deck!
Emily Metituk - group 4
Hi, my name is Emily Metituk and I’m so excited to be coaching with the Tritons this year.
I recently moved to Calgary from Grande Prairie (waaaaay up north). I swam for 13 years, starting when I was 6 with the GP Aquarians, where my competitive training began! I have been competing ever since and worked my way to swim in numerous Provincial meets.
Over the years, my competitive nature and drive to become better has become more intense. I decided to switch to the winter club, GP Piranhas, where within 5 years, I managed to win many medals at the championship level, but I just missed the cut for Nationals. My favourite race was by far the 50 free and 200 IM.
I started coaching when I was 13 and plan to do it for the rest of my life. I love to work with kids where I am able to share my knowledge about my favourite sport. My dream job is to coach athletes to their highest potential and I can’t wait to help these kids get started.
I look forward to getting to know everyone in the club and am so excited for this fun road ahead of us.
Sarah Rigby - group 5
My name is Sarah Rigby and I am in Grade 11 at Bishop Carroll High School.
I started swimming at the age of five with the Calgary Tritons and swam for a total of eight years before deciding to move to year round to swim with Calgary Patriots in 2016.
Last year, I was a junior coach and worked mainly with Groups 4 and 5. This year, I will be the coach for Group 5.
I am thrilled to be able to coach a sport that I love and have a passion for, especially with the club that I have made so many great memories with over the years.
I am looking forward to this upcoming season!
Eric Long - Junior coach
My name is Eric Long.
My background in aquatics started with water polo, including 3 years with the Calgary Torpedoes, where I got the chance to compete at a high level and where I helped the team win a Bronze medal at Nationals.
Some of you may recognize me as I have been a swimmer with the Tritons for six years. During that time I have earned sports on the podium at the ASSA Provincials. I have also competed for the Bishop Grandin High School Swim Team, winning medals for my team.
Currently, I work as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the YMCA.
Swimming has been a huge part of my life and it has taught me so much.
I am very excited to share what I know and to work with all the athletes this season as your junior coach.
