Samantha L. Catania

Sam is an exhilarating young Coach, who the Pickering Master Splashers are excited to welcome back for her fifth season with the club. Sam has had a long and very successful career in swimming despite her young age. She began swimming for fun, though it turned into a passion and a home. From lessons to swimming competitively as a member of the Pickering Swim Club, she realized the value of hard work, goal setting, dedication, and team building, and went on to qualify for OFSAA for all four years of attending St. Mary C.S.S.. In 2014, Sam began studying Kinesiology at Ontario Tech University, and graduated 2018 with a Bachelor of Health Science, Hons. Sam enjoys working with athletes of all ages, while using her health and fitness knowledge to improve the quality of life of others, as well as herself. When off the pool deck, Sam loves to travel but spends most of her time in her backyard with her dogs, enjoying nature and staying active.
