Badminton Coaches

Mariner coaches are all fully certified by the National Coaching Certification Program. They are leaders in our community and have been frequently recognized by the PACWEST and the CCAA for their excellence. The Mariner coaching staff is committed to the student athletes and their development as athletes and scholars. The depth of talent in our coaching staff is reflected in the 11th consecutive "Overall Championship" banners awarded to VIU (2006-2017) for the top overall athletic program in British Columbia.
