Jasmine Herbstritt Head Coach

Head Coach Jasmine Herbstritt returns to Loudoun Valley Viperfish for Summer Swim 2023. Graduated in May 2022, Summa Cum Laude at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and obtained my Master’s in School Counseling. Before that, I graduated Cum Laude from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and double majored in Criminology and Sociology. I am currently working as a school counselor in the Prince William County Public Schools.  

I have a strong work ethic and believe in creating a safe and equal place for all students, and in the summer, our swimmers, to excel and to thrive in. Along with this, I want to be able to push my swimmers to grow into strong individuals both competitively and socially. My overall coaching philosophy is to have an environment that encourages swimmers to learn and develop in and out of the pool.  

Swimming has been a passion for me for about 15 years and continues to be. After joining a summer league while living in San Diego, I began competing year-round at age seven and joined the JCC Barracudas Swim Team for 4 years. My family relocated to Virginia and as I grew older, I switched sports to volleyball. In high school, I took another turn and was in the Briar Woods Marching Band all four years and became a Drum Major. However, my love for swimming had never gone away. I continued to practice whenever I could find a pool. I became a Lifeguard for about 3 years and have been a swim instructor since 2017, within the Brambleton communities. 

For the last 5 years, as a swim instructor, I taught children and adults at various ages on how to swim and use proper techniques with an effective rate. I planned and delivered swim lessons using auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles, including set goals and expectations for swimmers to reach their full potential. There were several occasions I taught the whole family and all siblings within a family how to swim. It gives me a LOT of joy to teach swimmers the joy of swimming at any age.

I am excited to have fun with you all this summer!
