In high school, he participated in the Terrapin Pre-Senior 2 program. After graduation, he coached the Ygnacio Valley High School swim team and was an assistant coach for their water polo team. He helped get Concord High's inaugural water polo season off the ground in fall of 2003. He was an assistant coach for Valley Vista swim team in 1999 and head coach at Forest Park the past 16 years. This is Jeff's third year as the Northgate High School swim coach.

Nicole Rodriguez Deck Coach

Niki Rodriguez 33 years old, mother of 5. I have been Coaching for 20 years. Had my first "junior coaching" job working with the polywogs on Las Juntas and knew instantly I would always want to Coach. After I graduated from rec swim I coached for 3 years on Scottsdale under Scott Hirsch until I graduated from College (all tge while swimming still) and started teaching. I taught and did private coaching until my first child was born. I convinced her dad to let me put her on swim team when she was 5 and my itch to coach a team went wild again. After 3 years there, one of which I was the head coach, we realized we wanted more for our kids and came to a team that would offer both the competitive push and the fun atmosphere we craved. Where of course I wanted to coach again 😄.
