Eric Butler

Silver Age Group


I grew up in Glendale / La Crescenta and attended Crescenta Valley High School where I was on water polo and swim team. I helped the team win three consecutive Pacific League Championships in water polo and swimming and a CIF Championship in 1993. In my first ever event, I went under one minute in 100 freestyle. I was inspired by the 2000 USA Olympic Swim Team when they came to train at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center while I was working there. I have 18 years of coaching experience that started in 2002 at the Palisades Malibu YMCA. My coaching philosophy includes working on and improving stroke technique and having " Fun Fin Friday ".
