Welcome Coach Julia Czentye & Sean Abbey

Peter Verhoef

As we look ahead to an exciting and different 2020-2021 season, the Bolles staff has made some important additions that are sure to impact our young student-athletes.  We began a search to find leadership in our Mako and Tiger programs in the early spring and have been forced to put final decisions off due to the COVID19 pandemic.  Thankfully, we are excited to announce these changes to our membership:

Coach Sean Abbey will take the position of Lead Coach for our Tiger group(s).  While a full search was conducted, Sean’s connection to the athletes and his growth as a coach stood out.  We look forward to Sean developing an excellent balance of fun and learning in a group that prepares swimmers to compete while establishing foundations for a lifelong enjoyment of swimming.  Sean has been instrumental in keeping our Mako and Tiger communities connected to our program during the spring and summer, and we look forward to him taking lead on the Tiger group starting August 10.

Bolles Swimming would like to welcome back coach Julia Czentye (formerly Warnken).  Julia will take the lead coach role of our early Mako group.  Julia returns to Jacksonville with her husband, Alexander, and two daughters, Joanna and Jillian.  She will be on deck with us August 10.  Julia wore many hats during her time at Bolles; age group coach, learn-to-swim instructor, office manager, and Ponte Vedra Head Site Coach.  During her time in North Carolina, Julia was a lead division coach within the SWIMMAC model and an assistant swimming coach with Queens University.  We are excited to have Julia back on deck with us.

We as a program may not be able to celebrate with our new coaches in person, but please join us in our excitement to have these excellent role models on deck with our youngest swimmers.
