Coach Kenneth Ke

Head Coach

Email

Hello! My name is Kenny and I have the privilege of being your Head Coach this 2018 swim season. I first joined Stonebridge in 2003 and found a lasting community and home with the Stonebridge Sharks. Throughout my years with the team I have held multiple coaching positions, including Coach in Training, Assistant Coach, Preteam Head Coach, and Assistant Head Coach. Along with Stonebridge, I also swam with Rockville Montgomery Swim Club (RMSC) for eight years and Wootton Swim and Dive for four years. When I’m not at the pool, you can usually find me running around the local trails, riding my bike, rock climbing, or drinking copious amounts of coffee! Feel free to contact me at kenneth.ke66@gmail.com. I am looking forward to an amazing summer, and GO SHARKS!

Hello fellow Sharks! My name is Justin Zhou, and I am delighted to say that I will be returning to Stonebridge this year as an Assistant Head Coach! 13 years ago, I fell in love with this sport through Stonebridge. Since then, I have swam on numerous teams like the Rockville Montgomery Swim Club (RMSC), the Nation’s Capital Swim Club (NCAP), and the Wootton Swim Team.

This summer I will be trying my best to cultivate my swimmers passion for this amazing sport, and motivate them to make swimming a life-long activity, as it has become for me!
