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!
