Marc A Danin

Co -Head Coach


 Head Coach Marc Danin has been with Islanders Aquatics for 6 seasons working as Head Coach. I  grew up swimming for Three Village Swim Club coached by Barry Roffer for 10 years after scholastic swimming I  then went on to collegiate swimming at the University of  Stony Brook where I  earned MVP awards and records. 

I  bring a contagious passion for the sport to the deck every day and it’s easy to see that in the swimmers I work with. I approach every season with a specific training progression, every week with a race specific training program, and every day with fresh creative workout aimed at keeping the swimmers engaged in the daily challenge.

I am married to Catherine McShane and we have 5 children 2  dogs a Chessie named Toby and a Labradoodle named Hooper I also have  two cats which I forget their names constanly.

This past year I had my first swimmer on Islanders qualify for Winter Junior Nationlas!!
