He started coaching in 1961 with his father-in-law in his backyard pool. When the team grew and became too large, they moved to a facility in Claremont and formed the Claremont Crocodiles. In 1972, the team moved to Chaffey High School and became Chaffey Aquatics. In 1990, he took his current position as Head Coach and Aquatics Manager at the Claremont Club. The club currently has over 150 swimmers ranging from the White level to senior national. He enjoy coaching all levels of swimmers and seeing the progress each athlete makes throughout their swimming career. He look forward to the continued growth and success of the TCC Swim Team for many years to come.

It is always exciting and fun to help swimmers in their development as both swimmers and as young people. Every day brings a new challenge as their coach along with lots of smiles. She have coached age-group swimming for over 20 years and have been at The Claremont Club for the past 15. She look forward to seeing you on the deck!

Her swimming background started at age 5 and continued for 15 years. She grew up in a “swimming family” as all 4 of her siblings were also competitive swimmers. Needless to say, she love the sport. The opportunity to join the coaching staff at TCC has been a blessing in my life and I truly enjoy working with the kids. She is a firm believer that athletes gain much more from this sport than what they learn in the water. They gain social skills, time management skills, discipline, sportsmanship, and most importantly, self esteem. Above all else, it’s fun!
