Bryan has been involved in competitive swimming since the age of seven. He was a four time MVP while attending Thomas Downey High School in Modesto, California. During his college career at California Baptist University,  Bryan’s accomplishments in the sport of swimming include being a four time Central California Conference Champion (100 Breast), two time Champion at the 2008 PCSC Invitational Pentathlon and record holder (100 Breast), NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) record holder in the 100 and 200 Breaststroke in 2009. Most recently, Bryan finished 10th in the 2010 AT & T Short Course National Championships in the Men's 100 & 200 Breaststroke.

RAA has the wonderful opportunity of having young swimmers learn from the wealth of aquatic knowledge that Coach Bryan brings to the team. He began his coaching career with our Summer League Program and now serves as a year round coach at the Sippy Woodhead Pool.

Garret Shimko

National Prep/Senior Development/Masters


Garret started swimming at Riverside Aquatics Association at age 6. Throughout his twelve year swimming career at RAA, he swam with numerous coaches that helped push him to reach sectional and national level times. Garret was also Riverside Aquatic Associations 2014 men's Swimmer of the Year. In Junior college, we swam individually and in multiple relays representing Riverside Community College at the California State Championships. 

At RCC Garret worked together with his head coach Jason Northcott to write practices and weight room workouts. He helped his fellow swimmers in one-on-one swim sessions to work on technique both in and outside of the water. As team Captain, he helped motivate his teammates at practice and at meets. 

Garret also coached RAA Summer League during the Summer of 2016. He coached ages 13-18 year old swimmers. By focusing on core technique and proper stroke mechanics, he was able to tie the group together and lead multiple swimmers, some of who were first years, to the Summer League Finals.

Garret graduated from RCC and is now attending California State University, San Bernardino.
