SSM's CWG 2019/Provincial Team/Developing Talent Head Coach is Sarah Benson. Contact Sarah here!                                   


Sarah Benson is currently the Provincial Team Head Coach for Synchro Manitoba and the Canada Winter Games Head Coach.  Sarah is certified at the Competition Development (formerly Level 3) level of coaching and a Level 1 Official in synchronized swimming. Sarah served as the Assistant Coach for the Manitoba Canada Games Team in 2015. 

Sarah trained as an elite level synchronized swimmer and was a member of the first ever Manitoba team to win a medal at a National Championship (silver). She also competed in both team and duet as a member of the 2003 Manitoba Canada Winter Games Team and Western Canada Summer Games Team.

Sarah began to coach at the recreational level while still swimming and enjoyed passing her knowledge on to younger athletes. Sarah believes that all athletes, regardless of ability, should reach their potential in the sport that she loves.


SSM's Canada Winter Games 2019 Assistant Coach/Manager is Kayla McMurchy.

Contact Kayla here!

Kayla McMurchy is the assistant coach for the 2019 Canada Winter Games team. She has been involved in the sport of synchronized swimming for 13 years - 11 as an athlete and 7 years as a coach. Throughout her years as an athlete, she trained at the high-performance level and competed in many nation-wide competitions including the 2015 Canada Winter Games. At CWG, she represented Manitoba in all 4 previous events - solo, duet, team and figures. Her love for sport that developed through swimming has now led her to pursue a degree in Kinesiology at the University of Manitoba.

"As a part of the coaching staff for the Canada Winter Games Team this season I hope to bring my knowledge from my studies and my experience as an athlete to help the team reach their full potential, and to help these young women to develop healthy habits that they can use throughout the rest of their lives."
