Head Coach

Hello, my name is Jill Orton! I am very excited to coach the Sailfish swimmers and meet the Potomac Station community. Summer league swimming has always been a huge part of my life, growing up I swam in the Colonial Swim League and Northern Virginia Swim League. In addition to swimming in the summer, I swam for a local year round club team in Potomac Valley, Ft. Belvoir Swim Team until my senior year in high school when I switched to SNOW Swimming. I accepted a scholarship to Ohio University and swam for the Bobcats while completing my degree in English and Sports Industry. I love coaching swimming and am a USA Swimming level 2 coach. I've coached at the collegiate level as well as age group swimmers, most recently was the Head Site coach for SNOW swimming at Ida Lee and the head coach for the Bettas in the ODSL. My Masters of Education is from Marymount University, I currently teach preschool where my oldest son attends. My family and I love spending our summer outside and are all "pool rats"! Go Sailfish!

Hello! My name is Jake and I am excited to be a junior coach this year for the Potomac Station Sailfish! This is going to be my 12th season with the Sailfish. I am currently working as a lifeguard at Claude Moore Recreation Center; so if you see me there don’t be afraid to say hi! I am also finishing up my sophomore year at Heritage High School. I have always wanted to coach swimming and I am very thankful I finally have the opportunity to do so. I play basketball for Heritage and for my local travel team. Before I started basketball, I was a swimmer for Snow Swimming. I swam with Snow for six years. I have a love for coaching and helping people out. As for my plans for the future, I plan to attend college and then join the United States Navy. I also have interest in the law enforcement field. Once again, I am very excited to be coaching this year and we are going to have a great season!

Hello! I am a rising senior at Heritage High School, and am proud to swim on their team. I started swimming when I was 7 and swam for NCAP (back then it was called Curl Burke) for 7 years. This will be my 10th year with Sailfish, having having been a mentor for 4 years, and cannot wait to share my passion for swimming as a Junior Coach. Outside of swimming, I enjoy playing the flute in the school's symphonic and marching band, and playing the piano in my spare time. I maintain an art portfolio using all sorts of mediums, and have participated in Odyssey of the Mind for a whopping 6 years. I am so excited to be working with this year's coaches and hope to make this summer a stellar season!
