Coaching Staff

Patricia Jenkins

Head Coach - Gold Group



I am an ASCA Level 3 certified coach. I have been coaching over 15 years now. I set goals to constantly bring up to date my level of coaching.  I endeavor to work hard for my swimmers by keeping documented educational hours, test, and provide the required "performance achievements" and submit verification/data to receive the certification. I have coached High School All Americans, Age Group National Top 16 Swimmers, and had those swimmers qualify for USS Nationals. I was selected to serve as the coach for the 13-14 years olds representing the Pacific Northwest All Stars Team and the North American Challenge Cup.

I coached in the Oregon Swimming area for a number of years, and it is where most of my performance swimmers were recorded. I coached high school swimming for 5 high schools, with a combined number of as many as 118 swimmers in a season, (Camas High, Battle Ground High, Washougal High, Hockinson High, and Brush Prairie).

I was an athlete all my life, and even as a master's athlete after graduating from Oregon State University, I competed in Ironman competitions (many), running and bicycle racing.

Thomas M Springer

Age Group Coach


Tom began coaching in the spring of 2005. He has was a collegiate nationally ranked swimmer in 1992-4 specializing in backstroke and the Individual Medly. "Joining the Piranhas as a coach has been a wonderful experience. There is nothing better than watching a person make transformational discoveries about themselves and what they are capable of... I get to see that in the pool every day. And be part of the process!"

Mikal Reeves

Age Group Coach


I am a Level 2 certified swimming coach. I have coached swimming for over 4 years. 

I did competitive swimming myself for 13 years, which included club level and high school; my best events included 500 yd and 1650 yd Free, 100 yd and 200 yd Breaststroke. 1500 meter Free, 100 and 200 meter Breaststroke. 
I've always been an athletic guy, I still try my best to stay in shape to set a good example for the swimmers; I love doing dryland workouts with them as well as in the water workouts. 
I teaching swimming lessons as well, because I love to help kids get a feeling for the water and help them to enjoy it; I've helped lead many children to competitive swimming as well. 

I'm proud to be a part of PPST, and I'm proud of the swimmers who I coach for their hard work in competition.

As Washington DC native she started swimming at the local summer swim team at the age of 9. Progressing into the tween year she moved into the world of USA swimming with Nations Capital Swim Club and started coaching/private lessons till college at East Carolina University. By the time of adult hood, and several Navy moves latter, she coached several swim teams in the Hampton Roads, VA area including TCAC, Indian Lakes Swim Team and other head parent volunteer positions.

Also while in the area she coached a top tier championship summer league team, the Mt. Vernon Gators.
