Ian McNeal

Head Coach

Email

My name is Ian McNeal and I am the Mariners new Head Coach. I have been coaching in the Mid-Atlantic region for the past twelve years. I worked as the Aquatic Director and Assistant Coach for the YMCA Randallstown Sharks from 2009 until 2013.  I then went on to work as Head Coach of the YMCA Sea Dragons of Alexandria, Virginia from 2014 until this year after teaching swimming, lifeguarding, CPR/AED and First Aid for a year at the YMCA Silver Spring.  While I have coached all age groups, I have primarily been tasked with developing the 10 and under groups.  The Sea Dragons, numbering under 100 athletes, competed in the Potomac Swim League and the Chesapeake Potomac Swim League. For a small team we accomplished quite a bit: 
2017: Third Place Overall / 8 & Under Championship 
2018: East Field South District Championships / 10 & Under Small Team Champions 
2019: Opening Gun / Forth Place High Team Score
Swimming Background:
I began swimming during the Summer league in Columbia, Maryland at the age of nine.  I swam competitively through my Sophomore year in college.  My favorite strokes are Breaststroke and Butterfly and my favorite events are

100/200 Breaststroke, 100/200 Butterfly and 200 Individual Medley.

Philosophy:
I believe in swimming it right before swimming it fast.  As a result, I like to focus on developing fundamentals before adding a lot of mileage. Additionally, I like having each practice group work on starts as frequently as possible.  This prevents any surprises occurring at a meet.
