Christian Riley

Age Group Coach (Maroon Group)


My name is Christian Riley, I’m 25 years old currently living in Miamisburg. I just finished my second season with the Germantown Gators Swim Team where we won 4 of our 6 SOSL meets and placing 5th at the SOSL Championships. I also coach swim team for Valley View High School and am looking forward to starting my second season with the program. Prior to working at Coffman as the Interim-Aquatic Director and Aquatic Coordinator, I was working at the YMCA Aquatic Center in Orlando, FL coaching the age group recreational swim team during their 2017 summer season.

I’ve been working with the YMCA since 2009 starting as a lifeguard and swim instructor at the Marion Family YMCA in Marion, OH. I also swam in high school for Marion Pleasant High School which then got me into lifeguarding. I moved to the Dayton area in 2012 with most of my family living in the Germantown-Valley View area and working at the West Carrollton YMCA. I have been attending Wright State and Sinclair Community College studying mostly in Sports and Recreational Management but am looking to continue my education seeking a teaching degree.

The Y has always been a big part of my life having grown up and going to the Y daily as a child and working as a young adult. I admire what the Y stands for and am looking forward to continuing the Y mission through my coaching at the Coffman YMCA. Go Bucks, Go Spartans, and GO CROCS!
