MSABC would like to congratulate Leon Politano being recognized by the British Columbia Swim Coaches Association (BCSCA) as BC Swim Official of the Year.
Leon first began his Officials career in the 90s soon after writing a cheque to the Coho Swim Club for officiating a swim meet. He offered to volunteer at future meets and soon found himself on a journey to becoming a Level 5 Swim BC/SNC official. By 2009, after several years on deck and a series of clinics, Leon achieved certification.
Within the master’s community, Leon is a NCCP level 2 certified (and half way through level 3), ASCA level 2 certified masters coach and certified Special Olympics coach. He currently coaches Westshore Masters on Vancouver Island.
His current goal is to participate in the FINA World Masters in his new age group: 70-74.
Congratulations Leon and thank you for being such an dedicated, devoted and inspiring member of our swimming community!
