Coaches and Philosophy

“We, the coaches, believe that competitive swimming is one of the greatest sports in the world. It fosters in the individual a desire for personal excellence, and a commitment to achieve. Our role as we see it is to nurture that desire and commitment through programs focused on physical and mental skill development. Overlying all of this, we know that swimming is fun, and that this spirit should be the driving force of everyone’s involvement with the sport.”

Lead for Seniors and Minis


Hello everyone,

My name is Alycia, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the lead coach for the minis and seniors at PMA this summer. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with all of you over the upcoming season. As a Division I swimmer and Canadian national medalist, as well as swim coach for the past 5 years I have gained extensive experience and knowledge in the world of competitive swimming. Currently, I am in my third year studying Business Administration with a focus on marketing at LIU – Brooklyn, and I am also a member of the university’s swimming team.

Last season, I had the privilege of coaching both the seniors and minis, and I am excited to return to the position this summer. I have big plans for both groups and believe that we can accomplish some great things together this season and of course have lots of fun!

I am incredibly passionate about swimming and coaching, and I am committed to helping each swimmer reach their full potential. I am confident that with my experience and dedication, we can have an unforgettable summer at PMA. I cannot wait to meet you all and get started on this exciting journey together.

Support Coach


My name is Lucas Fong, I am a grade 11 student at Burnaby Mountain Secondary School. I have been swimming for almost 10 years now, and started those first years with PMA! I swam with PMA for I believe 5 years and I had the opportunity to meet amazing people, and learn amazing things. Ever since I moved to winter swimming in 2018, I have been swimming with the Simon Fraser Aquatics up until just last year when I moved to the Langley Abbotsford Olympians to join the National training group. I have always enjoyed swimming ever since I was a young Div 1 swimmer in PMA and I hope to offer all the knowledge I have about the sport, to hopefully inspire young PMA athletes this Summer to pursue Swimming just like I did!”
