Dallas Mix – High Performance Program Technical Coach

Dallas is the Head Coach for the Calgary Climbing Centre Performance Team. He spent 6 years teaching for the faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Alberta where he received his Masters of Coaching through the faculty of Kinesiology. Dallas entered his graduate degree halfway into his career as a climbing coach, and as he was learning in the classroom he was immediately able to experiment with and implement concepts directly into his practice. His final project was on strength training for climbing athletes. Dallas’ background in sport science uniquely qualifies him for the High Performance Program Technical Coach position with Team Canada and he looks forward to working with the team.
