Jenna Anselmo

Summer & Winter Head Swim Coach

Email

Coach Jenna Anselmo has been coaching the Gators since 2010. She was an assistant coach for two years and has been the girls head coach since 2012. This year she has stepped into an even bigger role as Head Coach of the entire Pennridge Aquatic Club. 

Coach Jenna has been a Gator all her life. She started swimming for the summer PAC team in 1994 and fell in love with the sport. She would spend the rest of her career swimming for Pennridge in the summer and Souderton in the winter. She also was a four year varsity swimmer for the Pennridge High School. She excelled in breaststroke, backstroke, and the IM. 

In 2018, Jenna returned to her alma mater to be the head coach of the men’s swim team. And in 2019 began a new adventure by becoming the assistant coach for the women’s water polo team. While coaching the high school teams is a lot of fun and allows her to do the thing she loves most as a career, her heart belongs to the Gator Gang. 

When Jenna has a free moment away from the chlorine she loves spending time with her husband John and their pit-bull Apollo, reading, cooking and planning her next trip to Walt Disney World. 

There’s a quote that sums up Jenna’s coaching style: “The strongest people are not always the ones who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose”. It’s one of the core values that she strives to instill in all of her athletes along with finding the joy in everything you do! 

Lori Zimmerman

Summer & Winter Head Diving Coach

Email

Coach Lori grew up as a PAC gator way back when...  She dove with PAC over the summer, Souderton Aquatic club over the winter and competed in US Diving meets as an independent athlete.  Pennridge HS started their first swimming and diving team just before she graduated high school.  "The team was so small that the divers sometimes had to participate in the relay races so that we could have two relay teams!  It wasn't pretty, but we got it done and had fun at the same time!"

Favorite Dive: Hmm, it now seems a life time ago...probably the back somersault layout, the front somersault full twist, and the reverse dive layout.  They were definitely not the most challenging dives on my list, but they were so fun and felt effortless!

Lori took a break from coaching as she pursued her career first as an athletic trainer for colleges in PA, ME and FL, and then eventually as a school psychologist.  In 2017, she returned to coaching as the head diving coach for the PAC summer program and then stayed on as the head diving coach for the winter program as well.  "It is so much fun being a part of the PAC program again!  I grew up with this club, and the sport of diving was a very important part of my life.  Now I have the amazing opportunity to give back to the sport and to the community.  Over these past few years with PAC, I have met some outstanding young athletes and families.  PAC truly is a family that works to help support, encourage and develop young people to be the best version of themselves.  I am very thankful to be able to be a part of PAC once again!"
