Scott Pinter Head Coach
Scott began swimming competitively at the age of four with the Marlins Swim Club in Normal, Illinois. His swimming career led him to pursue swimming in college at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Following his graduation in 2014, he did not want to leave the sport behind, so he pursued a career in coaching in Cedar Falls, Iowa with the Black Hawk Area Swim Team (BLAST). Starting with first time swimmers he worked his way up to running his own two groups of athletes aged 7 to 12 within a year. Iowa has an 8 and under championship meet that BLAST was able to win every single season from 2015 to 2019. In 2016, he began helping the Cedar Falls High School teams as an assistant coach. In 2018, Scott took over as head coach of both the men's and women's high school teams. Scott has taken home coaching accolades that include: Iowa age group staff of the year 2 times, high school conference coach of the year 2 times, nominated to coach the Iowa Zones team in 2019.
 
While coaching in Cedar Falls, Scott met his now Fiancee, Sararose Holding. Sararose was born and raised on Maui and with very little twisting of Scott's arm, convinced him to move here at the end of the high school season in 2020. Due to the pandemic he was not able to arrive on island until June of 2020 but could not be happier to be here. Scott also works as an independent Aflac agent and at Fabiani's Bakery and Pizzeria in Kihei.
