Chilliwack Spartans swim coach Justin Daly wins Rubber Boot Award

Daly was recognized in a vote by fellow coaches in the BC Swim Coaches Association

Chilliwack Spartans coach Justin Daly was recognized by his peers last month, winning the BC Swim Coaches Association Rubber Boot Award.

Since 1994, the honour has been given annually to a coach who is viewed as an unsung hero within the BC coaching fraternity, and the winner is selected in a vote by other coaches.

“I am very honoured to be the recipient of the Rubber Boot Award,” Daly said. “I feel it is a reflection of the work our entire staff has done over the years and I am humbled that my peers have recognized me.”

Daly navigated his Spartans through a challenging year for youth sports in 2020, managing to send six graduating Spartans on to university programs in Canada and the United States.
