Andrew Proper
Head Coach

Andrew has resided in Kingsbrooke all his life and started competitive swimming at Age 5 when he joined his neighborhood team, the Kingsbrooke Sea Lions.  it wasn’t love at first stroke, but he continued on swimming year round for OCCS and eventually ended up on Nation’s Capital swimming training under Olympic gold and silver medalist Jeremy Linn.  His passion for coaching started with the Sea Lions as he worked for two summers assisting with the developmental Pups program.  This experience led to roles as a Junior Coach for the Victory Lakes Piranhas, and Assistant Head Coach for Bristow Tri and Swim.   As a recent graduate of Patriot High School, Andrew has the distinction of being the first ever District Champion for the school in any sport winning the 100 breaststroke his freshman year (which was the first year Patriot was open).  His tenure at Patriot includes multiple, individual district championship titles, three team district championship titles, and he was a state qualifier all four years.  He graduated Patriot in 2015 as an AP Scholar with a 4.2 GPA.  In USA Swimming, Andrew achieved Junior and Winter National cut times and received Scholastic All-American honors his junior and senior years.  As a result, he was offered a scholarship to swim for the UCONN Huskies as a member of their Division I, American Athletic Conference team.  He is wrapping up a successful freshman year having been recognized by UCONN as a scholar-athlete (3.0 or higher).  Andrew is excited to return to the Sea Lions and share his passion for the sport and variety of experiences with the team.  He still has a few Sea Lions records on the board, but his greatest joy is seeing kids work hard all summer to put their name up there instead!
