Drew Wotton

Assistant Junior and Senior Team Coach

Email

Drew was born into a family of sailors, ocean lifeguards, and competitive swimmers, and grew up in and on the water.  For Drew, coaching is like being part of the family business: his parents were coaches with his first swim club, and he learned early swim technique under the guidance of various aunts and uncles.  A club team swimmer and cross-country runner from the age of 11, Drew consistently ranked among the top student-athletes in Massachusetts throughout his teenage years.  He was four-year captain of three athletics teams while attending Bedford High School, and broke multiple team and school records in swimming, cross-country, and track.  Even when not training or competing, Drew was never far from the pool, and worked for several years as a swim instructor and lifeguard at Hanscom Aquatics Center.

While in college, Drew became an award-winning athletics program director for the 105th Air Force ROTC Detachment at the University of Colorado.  After his tour of active duty service, he returned to Colorado to pursue a career in instruction.  In addition to coaching with Pikes Peak Athletics, Drew is also a substitute teacher and a member of the youth outreach committee for the Colorado Springs Ultimate Network.  Drew strives to impart a love of learning on every level to each individual he mentors, and to pass on the joys of being, and excelling, in the water.
