I have been the Head Coach of SSC since 1994.  I am also the head coach of the HSE Boys and Girls High School Swim teams. My family and I reside in the Fishers community and SSC is a great part of our lives.


Ron Ross                                President                       

I have been a member of the Board since 2014.  My wife, Renee, and I have two children – Kaitlyn (16) and Ian (12).  We became involved with SSC through the SSC Swim School.  Kaitlyn started swim lessons when she was 5.  She's now in Seniors.  Ian also went through the SSC Swim School and joined the Club when he was 6. He's now in Intermediates.

In regards to my career, I am the Senior Director of Engineering for Clinical Architecture LLC (BA in CS from Manchester University and MBA from University of Indianapolis).

I am involved in Head Table activities including helping at Super Splashes and co-Chairing Head Table for meets like Age Group State and the Summer Sizzler.  I am also an Administrative Official (via USA Swimming and Indiana Swimming).


Dan Johnson                           Treasurer                       

I have served on the SSC board since the club was founded in 1989 and have held various positions throughout  the years.  My wife Kaylee and I have 2 children. My son Luke is a recent graduate of HSE and will continue with the club as a Collegiate swimmer and my daughter Kenli competes in gymnastics.


Kathy Knurek                          Secretary                                    

I have served on the Board since 2012.  My husband , Jeff, and I have two children.  Cameron is a Barracuda and Sydney is a Senior.  They have been swimming with SSC since 2008.  I have volunteered as Team Mom, Steering Committee Chairs, and Meet Director over the past 6 years.

Brian Kertin                           Vice President                            

My family has been a part of Southeastern Swim Club since 2009, and I have two swimmers on the team: Madison (Seniors) and Katelyn (Juniors). I have enjoyed watching their progression from beginners to well-rounded swimmers, and I appreciate the hard work and guidance that each of their Coaches has provided over the years. While at SSC, I have served in various capacities, including serving as a member of the President’s Council; serving as a Committee Chair for the AGS Meet; officiating at swim meets; and swimming with the Masters Program. 
I appreciate SSC’s athlete development philosophy; the genuine interest that the Coaches have in the ongoing development of SSC as a great club; and the active participation of parents in supporting our swimmers and hosting well-run meets. All of us value the friendships that we have developed with the SSC family over the years.



Drew Sellers                         Member Relations                  

Our family joined the club in 2008.  We have one swimmer, Evan Sellers, who is now swimming with the senior group. In addition to having the opportunity to serve on the board starting in 2016, I am also a USA Swimming Administrative Official.  At any given meet or super splash, you will typically find me on deck working the head table. In addition to helping chair head table, I have served as the head of the technology committee, helping to guide and implement team investments to improve both on deck and spectator experience at meets.

When not at the pool I'm the Director of Engineering for a software company that provides Human Resources software for public schools. For the last 10 years, I have worked with school districts across the country helping to improve the quality of public education

Judy Howser                                                                 

The Howsers joined SSC in August of 2012. Our girls started in Flying Fish and have progressed through Stingrays, Sharks, Dolphins, Blue Runners, Barracudas and Intermediates.  Abi is 14 and in the Seniors Group. Ami is 12 and in the Junior Blues.

Jerry and I began our volunteering for SSC as Stroke and Turn Officials. After two years, I became a Starter and am now a Referee. Outside the pool I am an Audiologist providing hearing testing and hearing aids for our Veterans at my offices in Michigan, Missouri and here in Fishers.

SSC has been an integral part in the growth of my girls and our family. We’ve formed lasting friendships and relationships we cherish. We love being on deck getting to know other parents, swimmers, coaches and visiting clubs.
