The summer of 2020 marked the 30th year Jenny Kruszewski has been on a pool deck teaching and coaching Tucson's youth.

She began as a competitive swimmer for the Irvine Novaquatics in California in 1982 and has been involved as either a swimmer or a coach ever since. At the age of fourteen, while swimming on an SAAA swim team, Jenny began assisting during the practice groups of her younger teammates. At 16, and as a varsity swimmer at Sahuaro High School, she was added to the coaching staff of her SAAA team and has been paid to do a job she loves ever since. 

Coach Jenny has coached swimmers of all ages and abilities, including swimming lessons, “Parent/Tot” classes, adult swim lessons, USA Swim teams, USA Master’s swim team, Southern Arizona Aquatics Association (SAAA) and High School swim teams. She and her husband, Dave Kruszewski, are the current coaches for Sahuaro High School. Jenny has coached a Tucson Unified School District high school team since 1994. Dave joined her on the pool deck in 1998. Their four sons have been on swim teams from the age of four. Coach Jenny's proudest moment was when, at a home dual meet, she was able to watch a race with the Kruszewski Boys' freestyle relay team. 

Teamwork and a strong work ethic are important traits Coach Jenny expects from her swimmers. The team motto she enforces at every practice and swim meet is that "Our teammates are important!"
