Coaches and Directors

Coaching Team
Natoshia Zeller Head Coach

Coach Tosh is originally from York, Pennsylvania and moved to Ocean Pines in 2016.  Swimming has been a big part of her life, as she started swimming at the age of 4 and began competitively swimming at age 6.   After 2 years of swimming for the York YWCA swim team, she switched to the York YMCA to swim competitively year round.  Tosh continued swimming at the York YMCA for the next 10 years and also swam for her high school team, where she was became the team captain and qualified for districts and states.  While there, she set a high school record with her teammates for the 400 free relay.  Her favorite events were the 100 butterfly, 200 IM, and 500 Free.  Tosh received a scholarship to swim at Kutztown University, but unfortunately due to an injury, her swimming career ended her first year. 

She went on to Culinary Arts School and graduated with a Culinary Arts Degree.  After being a chef for many years, she made the decision to stay home with her 2 little girls.  

Coach Tosh has found her passion and love for swimming again by helping young athletes reach their true potential.  She believes there are three factors that lead to a swimmers success, attitude, discipline, and proper technique.  She makes it her goal to instll these 3 things in every swimmer she comes across. There were a few coaches over the years that really made an impact on her, and helped her become who she is today.  Tosh hopes she can do the same for the swimmers on the Ocean Pines Swim Team!

Kim Wanner Assistant Coach

Coach Kim started swimming at the age of 3 and competitively at 4. She spent her swimming career at Wilmington Aquatic Club under Hall of Fame Coach Bob Mattson. She represented the Mid-Atlantic LSC at Eastern Zone meets, was a Jr. & Sr. National Qualifier, US Open Qualifier and competed at meets across the country. She was an IMer and breaststroker. Kim has spent many years teaching swim lessons, coaching at WAC, and most recently coaching at MDY. Kim’s coaching philosophy is rooted in her passion for mechanics and the science behind swimming. You’ll hear Kim on deck adjusting strokes and providing constant reminders to facilitate self-correction. She will be OPST’s biggest cheerleader and be just as loud at competitions as she is during practices!

Jake Blazer Assistant Coach

Coach Jake joined the Ocean Pines Swim Team when he was five years old, and always looked forward to summers as a part of the team. He swam every summer until he graduated from high school.  The inaugural year of the Stephen Decatur High School swim team was Coach Jake’s freshman year and he swam high school through his junior year. He continued his education at Salisbury University and was a member of the SU swim team. All four years of his collegiate career he made the All – Conference team and his favorite events were freestyle and breaststroke.

Coach Jake moved back to the area in 2020 to work for Tidal Health as an Application Systems Analyst. He is excited to re-join OPST as a Coach and hopes to help the team enjoy this program as much as he did!
