Lead Coach:         Silver, Bronze

 

Coach Jane was born in Hastings, England, and graduated from the City of Birmingham Polytechnic in 1980 with a degree in Foreign Language in Business.   She swam for St. Mary's School and the Baldslow Swim team from 1970-1975.  She moved to the United States in 1998 with her husband and two daughters as her husband's job transferred him to the States, initially for two years, but they are still here!

From 2000-2013 Coach Jane was the Lead Coach of the 8 & under team.   In 2013, after some group adjustments, she became the Lead Coach for the Bronze and Silver training groups, and is also the Aquatics Supervisor for Bethel Park Recreation, organizing the Learn to Swim Program. 

Coach Jane is also the proud mother of two daughters, Susi and Charlotte, both of whom represented Bethel Park at the W.P.I.A.L. and P.I.A.A. Championships, swam at college, and Charlotte qualified to swim at the British Olympic Trials in 2012. 

Coach Jane knows the positive impact swimming can have on a child from personal experience. It brings self-confidence, teammates who are friends for life, a healthy lifestyle, self-discipline, and it opens doors that you didn't even know were there.
