Coaching Staff

Pierre Ruffin

Age Group Head Coach


His four daughter’s participation on a swim team led Coach Pierre to swimming twenty years ago. After coaching in Indiana and at New Trier Swim Club, Coach Pierre became head Coach for the Oak Brook Park District’s Stars swim team. In 8 years he developed the team into a competitive sports organization. During this time he coached USA Swimming Junior National and US Open qualifier Jennifer Ivarson, as well as Midwest Zone and IL State champions.

Coach Pierre has always believed in starting with the fundamentals: building the best stroke technique possible. He achieves this by working with swimmers to develop their technique through stages, using continuous feedback. With his no-nonsense approach, he is dedicated and expects the same of his swimmers. 

As head Coach of Ultimate Swimming, he is looking forward to developing a new competitive swim team. 

 "I have been blessed to be given some very talented young people to train, and have had great successes thanks to them.
