Benjamin Oliveira Assistant Coach

I first learned how to swim in the ocean on the South East Coast. When I won the freestyle competition for 8 and unders at the local beach association, my parents signed me up for the local YMCA program. I swam competitively through high school. We did pretty well for a small town program. I loved the freestyle but swam butterfly and backstroke for the team. Ever since then, I have loved swimming and I still swim today. I want to see MYST succeed. I hope, through hard work and lots of chlorine, the swimmers will love to swim and learn the lessons of life that swimming can teach. The sacrifice, the hard work, friendship with team mates, and goal-setting will build character and determination in all MYST swimmers. See you on the deck!
