Jason Schmeltzer Head Coach/Owner

Coach Jason has more than 15 years of coaching experience at all levels from Learn to Swim all the way to Collegiate swimmers.  Many of his age group swimmers continue to swim at the Collegiate level in the Pac-12, WAC, MAC, Ivy league and Conference USA.  Under his watchful eye, Jason's swimmers have become multiple age-group state record holders in both Arizona and New Jersey and have also qualified for Junior and Senior Nationals as well as Olympic trials. 

Coach Jason comes from an athletic family, his father, David, was a National Champion in Track & Field and his younger brother, Jadd, was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2011.  Coach Jason’s love and passion for the water and swimming can be credited to his Grandma Sylvia who starting him out in parent/toddler classes at a very early age.  The fact that she lived 100 yards from the beach was certainly a contributing factor as well.
