Coaching Staff
Janet Riggs Aquatics Director

What can I Say … I am a PENGUIN all the way.  My career started as a swim instructor many years ago.  Then, Park Terrace called asking me if I might be interested in coaching.  COACHING!  I had never coached before.  The interview was successful and I became an assistant coach to Richard Contreras.  He was a very young head coach, and had the drive and determination to help move Park Terrace forward in the direction it is today.  Throughout my teaching career, I also taught Lifeguard and CPR classes, for which I received a Resolution from the City Council for volunteer contribution in Lifeguard Training.  I am also involved in showing dogs.  My first show dog was a Borzoi, but the personality of Afghan Hounds caught my attention.  I have bred and shown Afghan Hounds to their championships.  If you don’t see me at the club on Sundays … I am probably at a dog show.  Years have gone by … I am still a PENGUIN and loving it!  Teaching and coaching, being with the members of Park Terrace, and above all, taking part in the spirit that exists at Park Terrace has been a great part in my life ... and a most rewarding one.

Robert Shideler Co-Head Coach

Hey all you penguins out there, I hope you're ready to take back our championship title!  My name is Roby Shideler, and this will be my seventh season as a Park Terrace coach, my first as the team's co-head coach. Winning a title this year is far from an individual effort, so we are going to need every single swimmer and coach to step up and work together. Every single summer has been unique and special to me, so I can't wait to get out there and tear up the pool! Currently, I am finishing up my final semester at Sacramento City College, and will be transferring to UC Davis/Berkeley in the fall, majoring in political science. I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting any newcomers, let's take the league by storm! Go Penguins!

Nick Shideler Nick Shideler- Coach

Wassupppppppp Penguins!!!  I can't even begin to tell you guys how excited I am for Summer 2019!  This swim season will sadly be my last one, and I hope to make it the most fun and crazy summer that a Penguin has ever had.  I've been swimming at Park Terrace for what will be my tenth summer, and coming into my second year of coaching.  Every second of every minute I've spent swimming and coaching has been a memory, and this year will be no exception.  With that being said, let's go get what's rightfully ours.  REVENGE.

Peace.
