Coaches & Administration
Head Coach: Brandi Higgins
Brandi has been back with the Sea Wolves since the Spring of 2014. After a five-year hiatus from coaching swimming, Brandi was excited to get back to the pool. Recognizing the great strides that the Club has continued to make since its reorganization in 2010 – becoming a SwimBC Sanctioned club, hosting a very successful swim meet each year, having provincial qualified swimmers in a variety of age groups - Brandi is enjoying the opportunity to helping the club continue to grow, and to assist the swimmers at all levels reach their potential, both in and out of the water. Brandi first started with the Whistler Sea Wolves in 2001 and continued as Head Coach until 2009. She then took a five year hiatus during which time she completed a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Victoria (Coaching).
Brandi’s qualifications include being a Trained Level 3 Swimming Coach, a Community Sport Triathlon Coach, and an M.Ed. in Coaching studies. Brandi comes from a swimming family, with her husband David Higgins being a former competitive swimmer at the National Level, and her son Kieran being a senior member of the Sea Wolves Club.

Junior Coach Program
The Whistler Sea Wolves initiated the Junior Coach Program in the Spring of 2018. The Program is meant to ensure quality coaching staff through a training program that sets our own swimmers on the path to become successful instructors, and, in due course, qualified NCCP swim coaches. Junior coaches are drawn from the Platinum (Senior) group of swimmers, and must be actively swimming and competing to continue in the program. The junior coaches will develop their skills through being mentored, working on deck with younger swimmers, shadowing of qualified coaches, and working through a theoretical component based on the NCCP Level 1 course.
