Neptunes Coaching Staff

SWIMMING COACHES:

Kim Fabbro - Head Coach

Hi, my name is Kim and I am the Head Coach of the Haney Neptunes, as well as a coach for the Haney Seahorses. I started swimming at the age of nine, with the Pacific Seawolf Swim Club out of Whiterock. At age 13, I decided to move to Vancouver to train with one of the top clubs in Canada, the Canadian Dolphins. I loved competing and worked hard and at the age of 14, I made my National qualifying times in 200 fly, 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle. I was then coached by Tom Johnston, who is the Canadian Olympic coach. I attended many National meets including Olympic trials. Unfortunately I did not make the Olympic team, but was able to get a four year scholarship to swim for the University Of Hawaii. 

Diane Lego

Hi, my name is Coach Diane and I have been involved in teaching and coaching swimming for many years. I did summer swimming when I was in my teens and early twenties and also started coaching both summer and winter clubs around that time as well. I have been involved with the Neptunes since 2001 when my older son joined to play water polo. The next summer his brother joined in and so we were truly a Neptunes family. 

I work as an Education Assistant here in Maple Ridge so I see many kids on a daily basis. I also love to be out in nature and work in my garden as well as take time to enjoy crocheting lots of different projects. I am looking forward to sharing the joy of swimming again this summer at the Hammond development program. Yours in swimming, Coach Diane


Dane Simmons

Hello my name is Dane. This is my first year as a formal coach and I am very excited about it. I swam competitively for 15 years for the Haney Seahorses and had some amazing coaches along the way. I'm looking forward to taking the best part of each one of my coaches through the years and doing my best to apply those traits to the kids. 

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!
