Assistant Swim Coach:

Sara Jungclaus

Hello DFSC! My name is Sara Jungclaus and I am excited to be part of the coaching staff this summer and hopefully many summers to come! I am a 4th grade teacher at Gibbsboro Elementary where I also coach Basketball and Softball. My students usually call me Mrs. J or Coach J. My husband Will and I moved to the area 2 years ago and immediately felt an amazing sense of community from our wonderful neighbors. This last Thanksgiving we welcomed our first child, Oliver. Much like his mama, he already loves the water! I spent many of my childhood summers at the Oaklyn Swim club. During my high school summers, I was a lifeguard there and assisted in teaching swim lessons from beginner to stroke development. I’m looking forward to getting to know the DFSC family!
