Meet the Coaches

The coaching staff is attentive to our swimmers. As one parent commented upon coming from another team, "My son has had more coaching attention here in one week than he had in a whole season on his other team."  BAT has a tradition of talented and well-trained coaches. They are carefully chosen for their love of swimming and for their desire and proven ability to work with and motivate children.
