Covid-19 Update




Billi is the head instructor and owner of 947 Swim. She has been sharing her passion of swimming and aquatic fitness to all ages on Bowen Island and the North Shore since 1994. Billi grew up on the North Shore where she learned to swim, competed as a springboard diver and later became a lifeguard and swim instructor with the North Vancouver Recreation Commission and Culture. When she is not teaching the fun folk of Bowen Island to swim in the summer, she commutes to Delbrook Recreation Center where she instructs aquatic fitness classes, swim lessons, provides aquatic rehab, and mentors other swim instructors.
