Dear TG Families,
I would like us all to welcome Ted Pierson as our newest member of the TG coaching staff. Ted has over 25 years of coaching experience and will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the program. He will be assisting the High Performance group this summer as well as filling in for Coach Johnny in Senior 2, while he is coaching SAIL until school lets out. In the fall Coach Ted will have his own group within the Senior division of the team.
Ted is from the D.C area and began coaching there after he graduated from Virginia Tech. He spent a half dozen years as a head site coach for Marlins of Raleigh and helped them to become one of the top programs in the country. He is also very familiar with swimming in the upstate having spent six years as Head Coach of Spartaquatics. Ted is currently a teacher with Greenville County Schools working in a classroom with severely handicapped children. Ted has an intense passion for the sport and developing athletes and people. His big heart will be a benefit to all our members. Please take a moment to introduce yourself when you see him around the pool.
