Steve Walker Masters Coach

I have been a swimmer my entire life, I was a NCAA Division 2 Champion in the 100 breaststroke for the University of California San Bernardino.  I have been coaching since 1990, much of that time spent at Riverside Aquatics Association (15) and Corona Swim Club (10).  After surviving a stroke, I began a coaching career with Yucaipa Swim Team.  I enjoy coaching and relationships I have with the Master Swimmers.
