Coaching Staff

Andrew Savine   Email

Head Coach - Rio Del Oro

Andrew Savine has been teaching and coaching swimming for the better part of the last 20 years. His coaching background includes positions both as assistant and head coach in recreational swimming, high school swimming, and USA swimming. His experience includes multiple stroke clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he was fortunate to be taught lessons on stroke technique and building a high character culture through swimming by the founders of Orinda Aquatics.

In 2015, Andrew became the head swim coach at Rollingwood Athletic Club, leading the youth Fall Swim, stroke clinics, and the Rollingwood Rockets recreation swim team. Andrew spent five seasons as the head coach of the Rollingwood Rockets, where he grew the team from 100 swimmers to 165 swimmers, and helped bring the team their first conference championship as members of the Northern California Swim League (NCSL) in 2017. In his time with the Rockets, the team rose from the Motherlode Conference to the Gold Rush Conference due to strong championship performances.

Andrew has also always had a passion for high school swimming, and he was most recently the head swim coach at Bella Vista High School, where his varsity men are the reigning Capital Valley Conference champions.

Andrew is excited and thankful for the opportunity to lead STAS and to assist with the program in any way he can. He wants to continue to do all he can to help grow the STAS program while helping to foster a culture of character, hard work, and community.
