We are so excited to introduce to you our 2023 H.E.E.A.T. Coaches!


HEAD COACH ~ Owen Williams

Owen will bring lots of experience to our team. On top of swimming with the Leamington Lasers for the last 10 seasons, he swims on his high school’s swim team and teaches swimming lessons in Essex. He also volunteers for Respite and at local elementary schools. He is excited to pass his love of swimming onto our HEEAT swimmers.


Lucas has been a competitive swimmer for the last 10 years, training on multiple teams. He has swam with HEEAT, the Leamington Lasers and currently the Windsor Aquatics Club. Lucas currently holds national level times and will bring so much skill and ability to our team. He is looking forward to leading and encouraging our swimmers to do their best.

COACH-IN-TRAINING ~ Lilia Derbyshire

Lilia’s passion for swimming, working with children and for HEEAT will make her a great asset to our team! She is excited to switch roles and coach this year, as she has competed as a swimmer with HEEAT for 9 summers. She is also an avid dancer and assistant teacher at the Dance Barre, babysitter and assists with the children in Sunday school. She is hoping to help create wonderful memories for our HEEAT swimmers as our previous coaches did for her.
