COMMUNICATION: WHO TO ASK AND HOW?

It is important that we maximize the time our coaches can provide to all our Bluefin swimmers. The time our coaches have on-deck is too valuable to be diluted by non-coaching activities. We ask that all our parents respect this fact out of consideration for the needs of the whole team.

To speak to any or our coaches please contact them by:

Arrange to speak with a coach outside of workout times.

Use a form you will find available near the bulletin board and place it in the coaches mailbox.

Coach Tijmen- tijmen.egtberts@eagles.cui.edu

Tijmen has been involved in coaching for the past 6 years. He is a head coach at Kahuna Water Polo club. He was born in the Netherlands and played waterpolo and swam since he was 8 years old. He moved to the United States to further his education. Currently Tijmen is a water polo player and swimmer at Concordia University – Irvine, where he is working on a degree in Sports Management and Coaching. As a coach, Tijmen thinks it is his job to get everybody enthusiastic about not only their own, but also other peoples performances. He can’t wait to continue as a Deerfield Bluefin!

Coach Jessica- jessica.pijl@eagles.cui.edu

Coach Jessica has been apart of the Deerfield Bluefins summer swim team as a swimmer and coach since 2000.  A compassionate educator, Jessica employs her natural teaching ability on the pool deck to help each Bluefin succeed.
