“Coach Al” Ledgin comes to the Berkeley Aquatic Club after 15 years as the Head Coach of the Morris County Swim Club (NJS). While leading MCSC, Al had the pleasure and privilege of contributing to the development of a 6 time USA Swimming National Age Group Record Breaker, as well as numerous USA Swimming Top 16 Individuals and Top 10 Relays. Prior to MCSC, Al led programs in Champaign, Decatur, Crystal Lake, New Trier and Lincolnshire, Illinois and also Easton PA between 1978 and 2005. Al has earned Age Group Coach of the Year honors in both Illinois and New Jersey. Al is also indirectly associated with BAC as his daughter Autumn (now 25 years old and living/working in Nashville, TN) was a member of BAC, a few years back. When not on deck, Al enjoys listening to live music and often travels an hour or more “searching for the sound”...... Coach Al is extremely excited about the potential for this opportunity to work with the BAC and it's membership in various ways.
