Coaching Staff

Jenna Stover

Girls Head Coach

Email

This is Jenna’s 8th year with the Gators and 6th year as the Girls Head Coach. Before returning to coach, Jenna swam for Pennridge in the summers, Souderton in the winter (this was before Pennridge had a winter team!), and all four years on the varsity swim team at Pennridge High School. When she is not on the pool deck with her Gator Gang, she enjoys reading, going to concerts with her husband, and cheering on her New Orleans Saints! 
“I cant wait to help this year’s Gators set goals and have a lot of fun working to achieve those goals!” 

Dan Walker

Boys Head Coach

Email

This is Coach Dan’s 3rd season as Boys Head Coach and 5th season overall with PAC. Before becoming a coach in 2014 Dan was a Pennridge Gator himself, swimming since the age of 7. He also competed on other teams within the Suburban Aquatic League and was a 4-year district qualifying swimmer for Pennridge High School.

After an awesome summer season Dan is ready for some more swim fun with the Gators this winter!

Chris Bashaar

Assistant Coach

Email

Chris has been coaching for the Pennridge Swim Team for almost 8 years, and has been involved in it since he was in 3rd grade 15 years ago.  He has also swam for Souderton back when they were at the old high school, the Hatfield summer team, and CBST.  He loves to coach with his favorite stroke being butterfly, and is most likely the loudest (see: most obnoxious) coach on staff.  When he isn't swimming, he works for the North Penn school district and goes to school for his MA in PreK-4 Education.  His hobbies include collecting designer socks, folding origami, bees, and answering questions posed by swimmers and swim parents.
