Coach JILL Head Coach


Hello, my name is Jill Orton! I am very excited to be back for another year to coach the Sailfish swimmers and work with the Potomac Station community! Summer league swimming has always been a huge part of my life, growing up I swam in the Colonial Swim League and Northern Virginia Swim League. In addition to swimming in the summer, I swam for a local year round club team in Potomac Valley, Ft. Belvoir Swim Team until my senior year in high school when I switched to SNOW Swimming. I accepted a scholarship to Ohio University and swam for the Bobcats while completing my degree in English and Sports Industry. I love coaching swimming and am a USA Swimming level 2 coach. I've coached at the collegiate level as well as age group swimmers, most recently was the Head Site coach for SNOW swimming at Ida Lee and the head coach for the Bettas in the ODSL. I earned a Masters of Education degree from Marymount University and currently work for the Town of Leesburg as the Assistant Sports and Recreation Supervisor and a Swim Instructor at Ida Lee. My family and I love spending our summers outside and are all "pool rats" and avid beach lovers of Florida! Go Sailfish!

Coach Caroline Head Assistant Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Caroline Pennington, and I am so excited to be a part of the Sailfish this year! I was a swimmer on the Potomac Station Sailfish when I was 5 years old until I was 18! I was a Sailfish mentor for many years before becoming a Junior Coach for 2 years, and then an assistant coach for 1 year! I also was a member of the Heritage High School Swim Team from 2014-2017! I just graduated from James Madison University (Go Dukes!) and will be completing my Masters in Elementary Education this upcoming year! I cannot wait to get to know you all this year! :)

Coach Ryan Assistant Coach

My name is Ryan Porter and I am super excited to be a Sailfish Junior Coach this summer! I have been swimming for as long as I can remember. I started as a Little Sailfish when I was five years old and this will be my twelfth Sailfish summer. I have volunteered for several years and am really looking forward to coaching our Sailfish Swimmers this season!

Coach Andre Assistant Coach

Hello, my name is Andre Keyser and I am super excited to coach this year! I have been on the team since I was six years old. This will be my first season coaching, but I mentored in a previous season. I am also been a member of the Heritage High School Swim Team, where I competed at the state meet, as well as a former member of NCAP Swim Club. I hope to help other swimmers grow, improve, and have fun this season!
