Favorite Techniques

  • Front Crawl to swim

  • Butterfly as a coach

  • Elementary Back as an instructor

As a child I was always a big fan of water.  As a young child I had a near drowning experience in a backyard pool due to a lack of fear of water.  Because of this I was enrolled in Red Cross swimming and I finished my levels very young and was recruited by the local pool to take my Lifeguarding and teaching certificates once I was old enough.  Soon after becoming a swimming instructor I actually switched to competitive swimming.  As a competitive swimming coach there was always a great deal of “teaching” involved at all levels.  As a head coach I also lead a team of coaches and instructors for many of those years within their swim schools. 

Away from the pool I enjoy fishing, playing with our new family pug “Milo” and raising Chickens and Quail!  I am married to my lovely wife Natalie Williams-Calhoun who is a professional cellist and member of the Atlantic String Machine.  I a father of son Lucas who loves to draw, play video games and tennis!

I have always believed that everyone should be given that chance to “be the best they can be” and with Mr. Bill Swim School I hope to be part of making PEI the first province where every person can swim by the time they are 10 years old!
