Mentor: Aaron Dziver/Andrée Pouliot Deschamps
Julie Vézina, a full-time coach for the Montreal swim club CAMO, has a natural talent for coaching in her sport -- she only had six months of experience in diving as an athlete! She has always been naturally drawn to sport however which motivated her to complete her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Quebec in Montreal.
She currently coaches athletes from ages 7 to 12, giving them the motivation necessary to be better athletes. Her Level 3 National Coaching Certification Program status helps support her grassroots level athletes that have had provincial podium finishes, and top-12 standings at nationals.
When she is not scrapbooking, drawing, or going for a bike ride or run, you will find Vézina on the side of the pool training her athletes.
