After the ceiling repairs to the Nelson & District Recreation Centre caused the club to shut down the 2013 season, the Nelson Neptune Swim Club is preparing for a summer swimming season with new coaching staff.

Cynthia Pfeiffer, a varsity swimmer at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, will join the Nelson Neptune Swim Club as the Head Coach for the 2014 summer swimming season. Rebecca Afford, a varsity swimmer at Queen’s University in Ontario, will take on the role of Assistant Head Coach.

Although both coaches attend university on the other side of the country, they have deep roots in the area. Pfeiffer swam and coached with the Revelstoke Aquaducks for 14 years and was the head coach for the Golden Dolphins last year.

Afford, 21, has been a Nelson Neptune since she was 5 as both a swimmer and then coach. The combined swimming and coaching experience of both coaches should make for a fun, enthusiastic, and successful season.

Registration is now open and filling fast. Training starts May 5 and the first swim meet is in Nelson on May 31.
