I am Coach Katsiaryna, known as Katya in the Singapore Artistic Swimming community. I immensely love Artistic Swimming, a graceful sport that helps bring up a true fighting character in an athlete. It is exciting for me to help reveal the athlete as a person, taking into account the individuality of each other.
As an athlete, I started my synchronized swimming career in 1996. In 2002, I qualified as Master of Sports of the Republic of Belarus, and in 2008, I was awarded as International Class Master of Sports in Belarus. Katya was the Queen of Synchro in Belarus from 2002 to 2010, winning Gold medals and emerging as Champions consecutively for nine (9) years.
I was contracted as a Professional Athlete and Coach of the Synchronised Swimming National Team with the Ministry of Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Belarus from 2005 till 2010, inclusive appointed as Assistant Coach in the Junior National team of the Republic of Belarus. Throughout this period, I also represented Team Belarus in FINA and LEN International Competitions annually and have proudly qualified for the 2008 Summer Olympics Games in Beijing, China. As a result, I was named an Olympian, ranking 17th position in the Duet event.
From 2012 to 2019, I was employed by the Singapore Swimming Association as National Assistant Coach of the National Team of Singapore, led Team Singapore winning medals in 3 editions of SEAGames, taking on the title of Artistic Swimming Powerhouse in South East Asia. I am also an NROC Certified Coach for Artistic Swimming, currently working in SPEEDISWIM as Head Coach for Artistic Swimming, with training held at the German European School Singapore (GESS). As a coach, I want to see how athletes enjoy what they do:
The making of a Champion is not in the gym or at the pool; it is the Desires, Dreams, and Goals that hold the primary key to success.
Enjoy music and like to dance? Then, you will like Artistic Swimming. Artistic Swimming is a mix of Swimming, Dancing, and Gymnastics. Artistic Swimming necessitates specialized aquatic skills and tremendous stamina, agility, flexibility, grace, artistry, and precise timing. SPEEDI Competitive Artistic Swimming Team focuses on individual approaches in selecting the best programs and performance for our athletes. Join us!!!
