/ Matt Burton – Swimming

Matt is currently the Assistant Head Coach for Grande Prairie Piranhas Swim Team. He coaches a variety of ages, with a primary focus on the Development and Potential level squads within the program. Matt can adapt his coaching technique to fit an individual’s needs (whether it’s physical & skill levels, medical reasons, anxiety, personality, etc). During this time, he’s taken swimmers to both Provincial and Championship levels. What sets Matt apart from others is his interaction with the swimmers. He always gives his swimmers pre and post advice and never forget the words of encouragement. Regardless of their swimming capabilities, he treats all the kids equally and fairly, giving everyone the tools and resources to reach their true potential.
