Ryan C Jones

Aquatics Director

Email

Ryan was an age group swimmer, collegiate swimmer, then head coach on our staff for 10 years before leaving in 2016 to finish his bachelor's degree at Cal Berkeley.  His swimmers nicknamed him the BFG for Big Friendly Giant and during his absence, his passion for the sport and connection to his former swimmers drew him to attend some swim meets as a spectator.  He returned in 2019 as Aquatics Director to oversee the swim school, pre-team, competitive recreational team and USA team at Rocklin Swim Team.  Ryan works with our Board and staff to fulfill the team's mission of providing the culture, training, and development for swimmers of all ages and abilities to become all that they choose to become.  He lives with his wife Alex in Sacramento and we are happy to have our BFG return to his Rockin Swim Team family in a leadership position.
