Jocelyn A Sowa
Head Coach Jocelyn Sowa joins Loudoun Valley II Viperfish with a lot of excitement and energy. She is looking forward to help swimmers improve their technique and endurance and help establish new team traditions. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns that may come up.
Her career began in the early 2000’s, when she led Yorklyn Yellow Jackets in Delaware. A few years later, she joined the Life Time Athletic team and served as Swimming Instructor, Master Coach, Head Coach of the Summer Swim Team Program, USAS Head Site Coach, and the Regional Head Coach of the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Coach Jocelyn began competitive swimming when she joined a Maryland summer swim team at five years old. After joining a winter swim league, she began competing year-round at age six. She continued year-round competitive swimming in Maryland, Ohio and Delaware until she was sidelined by a shoulder injury during her high school years. The injury didn’t stop Jocelyn from competing; she continued her involvement in summer competition until she aged out at age 18.
Her years as a swim team competitor and coach have taught her that a few key elements are necessary for individual swimmers and teams to be successful:
FUN: Swimmers always give their best effort & have FUN!
TECHNIQUE: Swimmers work to improve stroke mechanics.
DEDICATION: Swimmers maintain a loyalty to practice & strive to accomplish personal and team goals.
HEART: Swimmers face challenges with positive energy.
SPIRIT: Swimmers support each other in word and deed.
