Rebecca Oh Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Coach Rebecca and I am so excited to be coaching for Lansdowne Lightning this summer! I have been swimming for 13 years, and some of the teams I have swam for are Stone Bridge HS and Riverside HS. I just finished my first year at Rutgers University, studying Aerospace Engineering and doing Air Force ROTC, where I also participated in club swim. I can't wait to meet you all and have another amazing and unforgettable season this year!

Brock Lippy Coach

My name is Brock Lippy and this will be my tenth year swimming for The Lansdowne Lightning. I am a three time VHSL state level swimmer for the Riverside Rams, where I am a Junior. My favorite (best) stroke is freestyle but I was an excellent 12 and under butterfly swimmer. I enjoy coaching and I look forward to a fun season with everyone.

Caitlin Olsen Coach

Hey there! I'm Coach Caitlin and I'm super excited for my second year of coaching!

I've been swimming for LLST for almost 12 years now, and have been on the Varsity Swim Team for 4 years starting my high school career at Tuscarora High School. I am a senior at RVHS, and will be a Gamecock with Jack in the Fall at USC! I was one of four captains for the Riverside Swim Team and worked alongside Coach Ray, Coach Barmack, and Coach Body for an awesome season! I also coached under Coach Kilmartin for the Winter Swim Clinic for 2 years. I'm excited to spend the summer with my Ramily before I leave for college. I hope to make this team one happy family where we learn from each other and have a lot of fun!

Jordan Pham Coach

My name is Jordan Pham, and this is my eighth year on Lansdowne Lightning. After joining Lansdowne Lightning, and loving it so much, I began swimming year-round. I am a rising Junior and a member of the Riverside Varsity Swim Team. Apart from swimming, I enjoy training with my triathlon team. I'm beyond excited for my first season coaching, and I can't wait to work with everyone!
