Steven Hecht has served as president of the ELITE Otters Swim Team since its formation in March 2019.  He and his wife, Hagit, are proud parents of Shayna and Casey.

"As swim parents, we spend substantial time each week watching our athletes train hard and while we are thrilled by the enormous success and improvements all EOST swimmers make when they join the team, it is enormously gratifying to know that all that time isn’t just in pursuit of athletic success.

Our coaches and parents work together to develop important character traits like integrity, sportsmanship, having respect for authority and competitors, and being positive role models.  It isn’t just lip service.  We take every opportunity to instill these values in our children.  We  strongly believe that these efforts will produce champions in life and in the pool."

Steve’s professional career spanned over two decades in corporate finance and financial services.  He has had the pleasure of serving his community by volunteering at his children’s schools and with their sports organizations.  His guiding principal is to, “Leave things better than I found them”.
