Coach Raymond Zhou

Head Coach

Email

Dear Parent and Swimmer Sharks,

My name is Raymond Zhou, and I am the Head Coach of the Stonebridge Swim Team. I swam for Stonebridge during the summers of 2001-2011, and served as a coach for my last five years with the team.  While with Stonebridge, I also swam for Rockville-Montgomery Swim Club (RMSC) and Thomas Wootton High School, captaining Wootton to the Men’s County Championship. Swimming has continued to be a big part of my life during and after college. Last year, I re-joined the Stonebridge Sharks as we won the Division F championship. 

I am extremely excited to be re-joining the team and have a lot of plans for this upcoming summer.  My goal is to help each swimmer reach his or her goal(s), be it a faster swim, stronger technique, new friendships, or a fun-filled summer. I have assembled a diverse team of bright, ambitious, and enthusiastic coaches to help me do so.  

If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, email me: raymondzhou1223@yahoo.com.  I look forward to working with each of you soon!

Let’s go Sharks!

"Hello Sharks! My name is Ethan Moscoso and I am very excited to be your Assistant Head Coach for 2017.  I joined the Sharks 14 long years ago in 2003 and for every year since Stonebridge has been the most important part of my summer.  This will be my third year as a staff member for the team (I previously served as a Senior and Assistant Coach) and my sixth overall of working in some capacity with the organization.  I have just finished my freshman year at Grinnell College in Iowa where I study Philosophy and Spanish as well as swim for the Division III Mad Dogs Swim Team.  In the past, I served as a captain for Wootton Swim and Dive. I am very much looking forward to meeting all swimmers and parents this summer and working to create a cohesive, fun, and well-organized environment. If you would like to contact me, please email me at moscosoe@grinnell.edu (English, Spanish, and Portuguese spoken). Let's get ready to swim fast, improve, and bring more spirit to the pool than any other team in the MCSL!  Go Stonebridge!"

Coach Justin Zhou

Senior Coach

Email

Hello everyone!  My name is Justin Zhou, and I am a Senior Coach for the Stonebridge Sharks this summer. My first experience with the swim team was watching my older brother powerfully swim through the water, some twelve years ago, where I fell in love with the sport and the team. Since then, I have swum for various teams like the Nation's Capital Swim Club and the Rockville Montgomery Swim Club, as well as the Wootton High School Swim Team and more importantly, the Stonebridge Sharks. With the Sharks, I have participated much in the pre-team, in the past as a helper and leader, and more recently as the Pre-Team Head Coach.  I look forward to working with Raymond and the other many coaches we have this year and I’m thrilled to be able to use what I have learned with the Pre-Team.  See you guys at the pool!

Coach Katherine Wang

Assistant Coach

Hi, my name is Katherine Wang and I'm super excited to your assistant coach! I've been part of the Stonebridge Sharks since I was six years old, and while I've been a CIT and a pre-team helper in past summers, this is my first year being an actual coach. Unfortunately, it's also my final year being a Stonebridge Shark swimmer, but I'm prepared to make the best of it. This team is why I ever started swimming in the first place, and I'm grateful I can give back to my team by introducing a new generation of swimmers to the community.
