Head Coach/CEO/Developmental Coach
Brandon is the Head Coach and also coaches the Senior group. He has been a part of the Waves for the past 20 years and has coached every level on our swim club.
Brandon's swimming experience started at the age-group level and progressed all the way up to swimming at Hope College. His coaching career started immediately following college by working with various age-group and high school programs. Brandon has also been an assistant coach for Calvin College and currently is an assistant to the EGR Girls and Boys Varsity Swim and Dive programs.
In Brandon's own words:
"I feel very fortunate to be able to work with great athletes, parents and volunteers in a community that values swimming and the experiences it provides. I believe that swimming teaches our kids about work ethic, perseverance, being a team player, empathy, goal setting and developing life long skills that will help them long after their swimming careers are over. I am here to help kids reach as high as they want to go and I value all those who make the commitment to improve themselves as swimmers and people."
