Meet our Coaches

Founder and Lead Coach: Duane Jones

Since 1965, Duane Jones has been involved in coaching, with an expertise in all components of fitness, including nutrition and wellness. Duane has a Masters in Biology and Anthropology as well as a PhD in Exercise, Wellness and Nutrition.

Duane began coaching at the elite club level – junior, national and Olympic swimmers. He traveled over half the year, around Canada and the world with his athletes, gaining a solid reputation, and results. He was also lured to Carleton University to establish a varsity swim team, which went on to win medals at the Canadian university championships.

Duane’s reputation as a coach grew over time – he attracted the Canadian Olympic swim champion Alex Baumann into his fold – yet he wanted the freedom to offer his expertise and philosophy of personal excellence to all athletes, not just swimmers. Thus, he founded Technosport in 1995.

“I coach swimmers, runners, cyclists, triathletes, skiers, soccer players, and boxers. I always focus on the whole athlete to ensure speed, strength and endurance – whatever their sport, whatever their level.”

In 2011 Duane was the recipient of the prestigious Canadian Excellence in Coaching award, a recognition of his coaching excellence as well as his contribution to the development of all of his various athletes over the years.

Head Coach (on professional sabbatical): Ryan Jones

Coach Ryan has been a part of the swimming world since he was three years old – first as a young athlete, and then as a passionate coach with a love for swimming inherited from his father, Duane Jones. Ryan became a lifeguard, and did a lot of work with the very young swimmers as well as disabled adults.

Currently, Ryan is coaching in Whistler BC with the Whistler Sea Wolves, where he is doing age-group and Master’s coaching. Ryan has a background in Recreation & Leisure Management as well as Marketing, and currently has a private pilot license as well. He’s also a former ski racer and downhill ski coach. His leisure activities are always centered around water (paddleboarding) or mountains (downhill biking) with his faithful dog Roxy in tow.
