Elaine Thompson, right, has taught young swimmers, including daughter Meredith Thompson-Edwards, for more than 24 years.
Elaine Thompson has been swimming since she was a young girl growing up in Orillia.Her mother insisted she learn.
Thompson's love of the sport has seen her take on many roles; for more than 24 years, she's been sharing her enjoyment of the sport with local children as a coach with the Orillia Channel Cats.
"Swimming is my passion.That comes from my mother; she was a wonderful swimmer," said Thompson, answering questions about her years of coaching while still watching and calling instructions to silver-level swimmers going through their drills in the pool.
Entering her 25th year with the Channel Cats, Thompson first got involved when daughter Meredith started swimming competitively and the club needed help.
Now, Thompson has gone from helping coach Meredith to helping Meredith in her role as the club's head coach.
"I used to coach her and now she's my boss," laughed Thompson.
Logging about 101,2 hours a week poolside for practices, Thompson said there's also a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes as coaches work out lesson plans for swimmers.
In her years with the club, she's coached almost every level of swimmer.She said she believes swimming is a positive sport for young people.
"I love the kids, love to see kids swim well, and I feel it's probably one of the safest, healthiest environments they can be in," she said.
Although she said she hates to date herself, Thompson remembers joining the YMCA at its original location, which was only a block and a half from her childhood home, when the price was just $2.
One of the most important aspects of coaching for her is teaching swimmers proper technique that they can take into competitions.She's seen many of the swimmers she's coached carry on with the sport into university and become elite competitors.
"I love to watch technically smart swimmers," she said.
She describes herself as a "consistent" coach who likes to joke around with her swimmers - but everyone knows when it's time to get serious.
Thompson admitted by the end of the season, she's ready for a break.But the end of another season doesn't mean the end of coaching, and Thompson figures she'll be manning a stopwatch for a number of years yet.
"Probably until I'm 90," she said with a laugh.
