Chico AquaJets Members,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that the Board of Directors for the Chico Area Swim Association announces the hiring of our new head coach, Chris Daly.

The board conducted a recruitment beginning in early March and reviewed applicants from all over the country. Chris’ professional accomplishments and coaching experience stood out immediately. Chris also articulated a vision for the AquaJets that combined a great respect for our history and traditions, as well as many new ideas for team growth, community engagement and swimmer excellence.

We could list Chris’ experience and philosophy here, but we encourage you all to click on the link below and listen to Chris tell you himself. He was recently interviewed by the Florida Swim Network due to his recent selection as a coach for the US Team at the 5th World Deaf Swimming Championships in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Chris and his wife Courtney recently visited Chico and fell in love with our community. They will be moving to California from Florida this summer and Chris will be taking his place on deck around NVALS. In the meantime, Chris will be engaged with our coaches and provide support and recommendations for their summer workouts.

Chris has sent his own introduction to our members and families in the attached letter.

Please join the board in welcoming Chris Daly to the Chico AquaJets family.

Jim Parrott

 President, CASA Board of Directors
