Hello, my name is Jonathan Zuchowski, and I am the head coach of Flood Aquatics Swim Team. I am a USA Swimming Certified Coach and ASCA Level 5 lifetime member.
I began competitive swimming at age 8 in New Jersey. I went on to swim throughout college at Montclair State University. During my senior year, I was named captain of the men’s swim team and was blessed to be a member of a school record-breaking 200 yard freestyle relay team. In 1995, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Finance. I went on to coach for two years at the Rahway YMCA in New Jersey. I later accepted a management position with Waterhouse Securities, which took me away from coaching.
Since changing careers and moving to Florida, I rediscovered my passion for swimming. Several years ago when my children began competing, I realized that I wanted to get back into the sport I love. I spent a considerable amount of time learning from 3-time Olympian Gary Hall, Sr. at the Race Club.
Since November of 2015, I have been very blessed during my time at Flood Aquatics. Since day one I have been supported by Coach Courtney Pisano. Together, we have qualified athletes for every meet from Junior Olympics to Olympic Trials. We have produced multiple Junior Olympic Champions, won multiple JO age-group titles, Boys 2018 FGC Junior Olympic Champions, broken dozens of FGC LSC records and 7 National Age Group records.
While I am excited by all the swimming accomplishments and awards, I am most proud of the environment that my coaches and families have created. We are a small but mighty team and serve a powerful God.
