Head Coach - Steph Gant
I grew up swimming for SCCY (southern Chester County YMCA) now the Jennersville YMCA and swam in high school. My highest ranking was 8th in states for butterfly. I was a butterflier and IMer. I have lived in NYC, LA and across the pond in England all before returning to the East Coast.
I began coaching 15 yrs. ago for the Wayne Wahoos and started at Archmere Academy in 2006 as the assistant swim coach. I took over as head coach 4 years into it and this upcoming season 2017-2018 will be my 12th yr. with Archmere where the team has grown to about 70 kids-and 2 squads.
Two years ago I took over the Healthplex's swim team and turned it into an in-house team, where the main focus was developing strokes and techniques. That team has grown from 25 to 56 kids and we've worked with special needs kids too. I developed a 5 week spring stroke and turn clinic for the Healthplex for the 3rd year in a row where I essentially summer swim prep the majority of the kids.
