Julia Rosec

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Julia! I'm very excited to be apart of the coaching staff for the Summer 2016 season! This will be my 9th summer competing as a Haney Neptune, and my 5th summer as a coach. As a Neptune I've swam, played water polo and have also coached both of these disciplines. As well as the Neptunes, I've played water polo with the Fraser Valley Water Polo Club, swam with the Haney Seahorses Swim Club, and am currently an on-call coach with the Seahorses. As a swimmer my favorite events are 100m and 200m Backstroke and 100m and 200m Fly. My favorite memory from swimming was attending the 2012 BC Summer Games and placing top 8 in 4 of my events. My favorite memory as a polo player was attending the Nike Open Water tournament in Oregon with Team BC in 2014. I'm currently finishing my grade 12 year at Maple Ridge Secondary and will be graduating in June. After graduation I'll be attending the University of the Fraser Valley, where I'll begin studying to get my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. When I'm not studying or coaching, you can find me working out with the Crossfit Maple Ridge Vikings where I hope to make the Regional team in the near future. Although I am the youngest member on the team by 9 years, I'm determined to secure a spot on the team! I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you this summer. See you on the pool deck!

 

Taylen Lee-Chin

Hi Neptunes! I’m Taylen, and I can't wait to start this upcoming summer season! I have been part the Neptunes since 2009, starting off as a swimmer in Div. 1 and then becoming a water polo player when I was 11. As well as being with the Neptunes, I have played water polo with Pacific Storm Water Polo and I also coach with the Haney Seahorses Swim Club. My experiences throughout the years brought me to many swim meets, provincials and water polo tournaments, where I have travelled to many pools throughout Canada and the United States. These experiences have shown me the motivation, determination and the awesome, fun filled memories you can have with these amazing sports, and I can't wait to share what I have learned! When I’m off the pool deck, you can find me out and about taking pictures with my camera and working on other artsy projects. See you at the pool, and watch out for the stickers! 

 


Jeannette Baxter

Hey! I'm Jeannette! I have been swimming with the Haney Neptunes for 9 years, starting off in the Hammond program when I was 7, then moving to the competitive program. I started volunteer coaching in 2012 with the Hammond program, then progressed to the competitive program that Fall and haven’t stopped since! I have also volunteered with the Haney Seahorses to gain some extra experience. I love being able to pass on knowledge and love of the sport of swimming that I have gained, as well as having fun with the kids. During the Fall and Winter maintenance, I have also been involved in the Haney Neptunes Synchro team and loved every minute of it. I’m looking forward to a great summer of fun, fast swimming!        

 

 

 

WATER POLO COACHES:

Tim Torres

Hey Neptunes! Glad to be back for my seventh summer coaching with the Neptunes. I first started with the Neptunes as an athlete when I was 10 playing water polo. I played Water polo with Haney until I was 15. I started playing for Fraser Valley when I was 13 up until I was 16. I was part of the teams for Fraser Valley that won Gold at Nationals in 2008 and Silver in 2009. Also in 2009 I was named to Team BC. In 2013 I began coaching with Fraser Valley where I spent two years on the girls side where in 2015 the U16 girls won Nationals. I then joined the U14 boys side for half a season in 2016. Outside of coaching for the past 5 years I have been studying at both Kwantlen and SFU towards obtaining my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology, and currently only have 1 more course left until I graduate. I'm really excited for this summer season. Every year I come back and can't wait to see the athletes develop into amazing water polo players and create awesome memories both in and out of the water. If you have any questions or would just like to chat please come find me and I'd be more than happy to talk! Go Neptunes!

 

 SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING COACH:

Megan Pankratz

I am so thrilled to be back coaching with the Haney Neptunes! Synchro has been a big part of my life since 2010 when I joined with the Club. I last competed in the summer of 2016 and finished my competitive synchro career by winning gold in both duet and team. I have been coaching on and off with the Neptunes since 2013 when I volunteered with the Hammond Development Program. I then went on to volunteer with the Jr Neptunes the following winter and started Jr coaching Synchro in 2015. While I balance coaching and finishing high school, I am also a competitive sprint paddler. In 2016, I competed at the BC Summer Games in Abbotsford with a handful of other athletes where I won a total of 4 medals. This past summer, I qualified for the Sprint Canoe Kayak Canadian National Championships where I competed a year above my own. As well, this summer I attained my lifeguard certification and instructed paddling summer camps through the months of June to August. Since I always seem to find myself in or on the water, I have decided to continue my own training and education in the field of aquatics and hope to not just be a coach, but also a lifeguard. My passion for sport only makes me more excited to share my knowledge and experience with younger athletes! I can’t wait for the seasons to come!
