Senior Coach

Coach Tom has been part of the GGST family since 1998. Tom grew up in San Jose and participated in high school swimming and water polo as well as wrestling and soccer. He was a CCS finalist in the 100-yard free in high school and was a San Jose City College All-American for 2 years in swimming and for 1 year in water polo. At San Jose State University he played on the Nationally #2 ranked Spartan water polo team. Tom received his B.S. degree in Human Performance in 1973 from San Jose State . Tom has been coaching swimming for over 25 years and before he joined us here in Gilroy , he was the Head Coach of Morgan Hill Swim Club for over 13 years. While there he coached 9 Jr. National Qualifiers, 2 All-Americans, 1 Olympic Sports Festival Athlete, 1 English Channel swimmer, seven top 3 CVAL finishes and 3 CVAL Championship Finishes. Many of his former swimmers have gone on to college with swimming scholarships. Tom enjoys snow skiing, hiking, and tennis in his spare time as well as playing with his dog Stitch. Coach Tom is a great teacher of swimming technique, and has a critical eye to discern what is effective and efficient in the water and what is not. He prides himself on swimmers being able to have fun while also learning the fundamentals that are instrumental in building a long and rewarding swimming career for each of his athletes; regardless of their ability. Tom coaches the Senior Group here at GGST.
