Welcome Aboard Todd Shillingtom
We would like to extend a warm welcome to Todd Shillington who has joined the WAC team. Todd will assume the coaching role for our early morning (Tu/Th 5:30-6:30am) masters swim workouts and will also be on deck coaching the Tuesday evening (6-7pm) swim workouts. Todd has been a long time resident of the TO area and is well known as a terrific coach in the masters swim community. Todd's focus on stroke technique will greatly help members improve their efficiency in the water and his outgoing personality will motivate swimmers to attain new goals in the pool.
Todd began swimming in the mornings of his junior and senior year of high school at WAC (formerly Westlake Swim & Tennis Club) with Ingrid Daland before Westlake High School had a pool on campus. Todd swam in college at the University of Minnesota Mankato and has been coaching Masters swimming for the last 18 years. Todd was the coach of his daughter at Oaks Christian High School for 4 years before she went onto swim for the University of the Pacific on an athletic scholarship. Todd is excited to back at the club where his passion for swimming began and looks forward to igniting that passion for swimming in our members. Todd is a Level 1 & 2 USMS Coach.
