SSC was formed in 1989 by Dan Johnson, head coach of HSE's high school swim team. It was originally founded to augment the team's off-season training and later expanded to include age-group swimming, based on the belief that competitive swimming offers an exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person’s life.
In 1993, Andy Pedersen was hired as the head coach of SSC and continues in that position today. Under Coach P's leadership, our team has grown to include over 300 swimmers! Don’t let our large size fool you; every swimmer has close access to SSC's professional coaches. Our coach to swimmer ratio typically averages 15:1!
