Coaches & Directors

It is our hope that all swimmers will come to every practice and be available for every meet - then reality sets in. But in the meantime, it's not the end of the world if you are going away during the season. Therefore, if your swimmer will miss a meet, please notify the Coaches as soon as possible so that another swimmer will get a chance to swim and the team will not lose points.

Instead of doing "vacation reports", we ask that you declare your availability by visiting each of the meets on the calendar and click on the ATTEND THIS EVENT button for each one.  Once you have selected the swimmer you are declaring for, you can choose either YES, THIS SWIMMER WILL ATTEND or NO THIS SWIMMER WILL NOT ATTEND.  You do not have to pick specific events, just give us a yes or no!  There is also space for you to write a comment on that reply form as well if you want to call something to the coaches' attention regarding a particular meet (i.e. swimmer must leave by 11:30 a.m. for work, or swimmer will be arriving late due to a medical appointment).

You can also contact coaches directly via email from the links below.  Any e-mail addressed to [email protected] will reach all members of the coaching staff.

It is particularly important to let the Coaches know if your swimmer will miss an "A" (Saturday) meet, because the Team must send in its official roster of swimmers by noon the day before the meet, and after this time only a very limited number of substitutions can be made.

When swimmers don't show up without notifying the Coaches, it hurts the team, because there will be no swimmer for some events and it also hurts other swimmers, who otherwise would have an opportunity to swim in that event.


Coaching Staff

Ryan Yuen

Head Coach


Since the age of 5, swimming has always been a big part of my life; which all started with the Middlebridge Marlins.  I swam for the Marlins from age 5-18, then immediately took over the Head Coach position when I graduated from the team.  I spent 7 great years coaching the team that I grew up with, but it was time to make a change.  I attended John F. Kennedy High School, where I played varsity football, swimming, and lacrosse, and graduated with honors through the Leadership Training Institute.  I then pursued my degree in Kinesiology at Towson University, where I was also part of their Division 1 swim team.  

Coaching has always been a big part of my life.  Aside from coaching swimming, I have had experience in coaching soccer, basketball, lacrosse and field hockey.  I look forward in spending my summers in King Farm and hope for great, fun filled seasons with the Screemin' Geese for years to come!

I started swimming in the MCSL in 1992 at the age of 5 for the Aspen Hill Dolphins. I swam there until the pool closed when I was 16. I have learned so much from swimming and gained many life long friends. I was lucky enough to have an amazing coach that made swimming the cool thing to do. Years later, the swim team culture is still very strong.  I still get the opportunity to compete against my old teammates and coaches, as many of them are MCSL coaches themselves. I look forward to bringing the enthusiasm and love of the sport I have learned over the years to King Farm.
