Athletic Director/Head Coach
My name is Danny Weber, and this will be my fourteenth summer
coaching summer league swimming. I started coaching the team I grew
up swimming on, the FAST Dolphins at 15 and did that for four
summers as an assistant. After that I moved on to Castlewood
Country Club and was the head coach there for 7 years, growing the
program from 67 to over 200 annually, and founded spring and fall
swim programs, as well as a development water polo program. The
last two years I have been the head coach of the San Ramon
Aquacats. Besides summer league, I have coached high school for 6
years. I spent the last two years at California High and am now at
Foothill High School, where I also teach English. I have also
coached for SRVLA and the Pleasanton Seahawks, as well as spending
a year as the volunteer assistant at Cal State East Bay under Ben
Loorz. I myself grew up a swimmer, swimming for FAST from ages 9-18
and doing fall swim with the Pleasanton Seahawks. I swam all four
years at San Ramon Valley High School and went on to swim for Biola
University on a swim scholarship.
I am very excited to be at Ruby Hill. I cannot wait to help this
program begin to grow together and reach new heights.
I grew up in southern California, when I was 10 years old I joined a summer league swim team. I fell in love with swimming and the following fall I joined the nearest club team “Corona Aquatics.” Later on in my high school years I joined “NOVA Aquatics” in Irvine. I swam varsity all four years at Santiago High School, and had the honor of being one of the team captains my senior year. I came to the Bay Area in 2010 to attend California State University East Bay on a swim scholarship, where I swam for Ben Loorz all four years. In December 2014, I graduated with a bachelor’s of science in Kinesiology.
In 2013, I took my love for swimming to a new level, I decided to try coaching. I coached for the San Ramon Aquacats for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. My time at the Aquacats gave me just a taste of what it means to be a coach. I started off as an assistant coach and worked my way to be the Assistant Head Coach for the 2014 season. Last spring, I was an assistant coach at California High school. This spring I am the Assistant Head Coach for Foothill high school. Last fall, I received an amazing opportunity to coach at Mills College in Oakland. I have truly enjoyed coaching at the collegiate level, and my interactions with the Mills team.
I am looking forward to my next opportunity, coaching at Ruby Hill. I am excited to work with you all to help you reach your goals and to grow the team as a whole.
