Jorge D Silva

Head Coach/Safe Sport Contact

Head coach Jorge D. Silva opened up the Hydro-Sonic Tiburones Swim Club in January 2002 after many years of coaching and swimming in Montgomery County. Jorge has served as a head coach in many area leagues, including MCSL, MCPS (high school), and Potomac Valley Swimming, where he got his start at the Ward’s Wolverine Swim Club. After seven years of coaching the Waters Landing Thunder team in Germantown, Jorge moved to a summer head coaching position in 2008 at the Clopper’s Mill Marlins.

With the help of an excellent coaching and office staff, Jorge has grown and improved his club literally every year. He has trained MCPS County champions, Metros’ finalists, PVS Sr. Champs champions, and Junior Nationals qualifiers. In addition to coaching this top tier of the program, Jorge continues to work regularly with all of his practice groups; he especially loves to coach the little guys in the developmental programs!

When it comes to swimming, Jorge “knows his stuff,” and he really cares about the young people he coaches. In order to keep up with the latest developments in the world of swimming, Jorge researches extensively and attends the annual convention of the American Swim Coaches Association. Jorge is a perfectionist when it comes to correcting stroke mechanics; he believes that developing proper stroke technique can prevent many common swimming injuries. Having watched many talented young swimmers suffer from “burn-out” before high school, Jorge believes strongly in a gradual development of time in the water and yardage in practice. He wants his kids
to like swimming and to want to continue swimming through high school and college; therefore, he deliberately places the emphasis on quality over quantity when training his younger athletes. Finally, what makes swimming with Jorge fun is his wacky sense of humor. Come watch a workout or two, and you’ll see Jorge joking with the kids and creating laughter all around.

When not coaching, Jorge loves to read, watch silly movies, cook, collect shark memorabilia, draw, and scuba dive. He spends much of his time taking care of his two young daughters and hopes that they might some day swim in something other than the bath tub.
