Head Coach - Jerry Jaramillo
Jerry Jaramillo joined the North Shore Dolphins as head coach in 2022. He originates from Medellin, Colombia, where he earned a Bachelor of Physical Education and more than 17 years’ experience coaching divers of all ages and abilities including three years for the National Team. His coaching accomplishments include the development of South American champions in all categories, including podiums at the Junior World Championships, Junior Pan American Games and numerous finalists at consecutive swimming world championships.
“Patience is a fundamental pillar for successful coaching. This along with my compassion and commitment to each of my divers has enabled me to support them to achieve personal success. These are the qualities I believe to be paramount to a successful coach and athlete partnership.
Since my arrival to Vancouver, I have been supported by an incredible group of divers and their families. Their support has enabled me to adapt easily - allowing me to focus on the growth of the club through the enhancement of facilities and training opportunities and ultimately an improvement of performance for all our athletes. We are working to create an environment that embraces divers across the continuum - from learn to dive to high performance - building a home for the future generation of divers.”
