Guillermo Toro, Head Coach
I started coaching in 2010 at the North York Aquatic Club. After graduating from the University of Toronto in 2012 with a degree in Physics and Math, I decided to make a move into full-time coaching. Before coaching I swam at the North York Aquatic Club since 2003. I represented NYAC at competitions up to the Provincial level. My favourite events were the 100 and 200 Fly.
Throughout my swimming career I always focused on absorbing as much information as I could not only for my particular events but on all events and strokes. This came from my natural curiosity and passion for the sport I love. This passion has led me to coach at every level from pre-competitive to provincial level. I have coached swimmers who were just getting introduced into swimming, regional medalists, and provincial medalists at the age group levels. Today, the same passion and curiosity are leading me into also coaching masters swimmers I am a strong believer in progression and working on one’s weaknesses. It’s important to train with a purpose and with a will to always keep improving. Every season is a clean slate of sorts. You have to approach it with renewed enthusiasm and ready to work on your weaknesses. Remember that the season is a progression into your best technique, highest endurance and a peak in speed at the right moment.
