Whitewater

Coaches

Head Coach: Dylan Henderson….He rocks!!

Dylan grew up on a hobby farm out in the woods near Nelson with back to the land parents. He ski raced on the Salmo Ski Team through to the age of 16 at the FIS level.

He and his wife Taylor built their home near where he grew up and have two sons, Harper and Arlo, who are enjoying the ski race life. Dylan began coaching when he was 16 years old as an assistant for the Whitewater Ski Team and that winter he took the Kootenay team to the BC Games. He returned to coaching as a parent with the Salmo Ski Team.

He began coaching at Whitewater in 2007 as the Head Coach. The team has been steadily growing and every season is filled with new and exciting programs and team adventures.

“I am very passionate about the Whitewater Ski Team. The most rewarding experience as a coach is working with athletes toward their individual goals, and through this process, seeing them reach their own personal level of excellence.”

U16 Coach: Al Bull

Al grew up on a ski hill in Ontario, being involved with skiing and ski racing his entire life.

He is a very experienced advanced level coach, coaching U16 programs around the Kootenays including Salmo for several years, as well as the Whitewater team as the head coach in the 1990′s. He is a huge asset to the team and to the Kootenay zone.

While not skiing Al can be found hanging out with his kids and engaging in his other passion…fishing :-)

Nancy Greene Coach: David Oosthuizen

I received my Entry Level Ski Coaching (CSCF) certification in 2011 and have embraced coaching and the professional development required to continuously improve as a skier and a coach. I love being able to identify a skill a young skier would benefit from and then encouraging that child to practice that skill, and finally seeing the on smile that appears when they realize they have accomplished the goal toward being a strong skier. When a child works to become a strong skier, they build an unshakable lifelong confidence. Have fun, ski fast, dream big.

Nancy Greene Coach: Corinna Stevens

As a Nancy Greene coach, Corinna can be seen encouraging the young rippers in a super positive way.Corinna has been a competitive athlete her entire life, competing on a national level in Wake Board.

As a coach she has high expectations for athlete development and has the skills and work ethic to bring out the talent and personal best in every one of her ski racers.
