2020 Calverton Chargers Coaching Staff
Our coaching staff brings a valuable mix of experience and enthusiasm to the pool deck, and we’re looking forward to a fun and competitive season. Coaches help our children become better swimmers, healthy competitors, grow in self-confidence and self-esteem. For the safety of our athletes, coaches must give their full attention to swimmers in the water during practice and meets. Parents are welcome to contact any coach at any time via email, or speak with him/her after swim practice or meets. Please keep in mind that in some instances additional age group practices may be scheduled immediately before or after your child’s practice.
