Nikaya Peiskar- Coach


  Hello everyone my name is Nikaya, aka coach Nikki. I am very excited to be coaching the Mini Mateys this season. 

Growing up I have always had a love for the water. I grew up in a small town of Smithers BC where I enjoyed learning to swim in my childhood pool  as well as the lake.

I started competitive swimming at the age of eleven. During my senior year I competed at a national level with backstroke being my strong race and my favourite event. I also had the amazing opportunity to grow as a swim coach where I coached the  Otters in my home town for three years. 

I then continued on in the field of aquatics to become certified as life guard and swim instructor for 7 years. I took a break when I got pregnant with my son Jake who is now five and excited to be a part of the swim team this season. 

 An interesting fact about myself is I also grew up competitive dancing as well. Most people wonder how do I swim gracefully? Being a dancer this  is where my gracefulness comes into action when I'm swimming. 

 I look forward to meeting you all and having the privileged of coaching your kids. Let's have a blast this year.
