Assistant & Junior/Mini Coaches:

Every year, Sleepy Hollow enlists the help of former and current Sleepy Hollow swimmers as assistant and junior coaches.  We are fortunate to have so many outstanding young adults eager to share their love for this team and willing to give back to this team.  These coaches are leaders and role models and their enthusiasm, patience and LEGEND PRIDE are a valuable asset to the coaching staff and the entire team.
