Paul has been involved with swimming from the age of 8. During his high school years he would spend his summers balancing practice with coaching his local summer league team.

Now in his 2nd year with Fish Aquatics, he is excited to see what his swimmers can achieve and loves watching them continually progress in the pool and in life. In addition to coaching Fish he is also an assistant swim/head diving coach with the West Lafayette High School Team.

Colin Arther Mothersead

Yellow Coach McCutcheon Site


Colin is a coach AND a swimmer. He spends his mornings and early afternoons training at West Lafayette and assisting with the high school team and then turns around and coaches the age group right after, and he wouldn't have it any other way. After finishing his swimming career with Purdue, Colin began competing in triathlons. Returning to the pool last year he began coaching and swimming with Fish and the high school team. He can't wait to start working with a new group and helping kids find the same joy and success that the pool has provided for him. When Colin isn't in the pool he is working>
