Jennifer Schmitz Athletic Director & Head Coach
Gemma McKeon Imagination & FDSL Lead Coach

Gemma began swimming at the early age of four. From the beginning, she had an obvious love of not only the sport but also, anything related to the water (surfing, paddle boarding, etc) . In high school, she swam for the Bolles School Sharks Club team where she participated in multiple Junior Nationals, States and other meets around the country while attaining High School All American status. After high school, she continued her swimming career two more years in the Division One program at University of North Florida. Ultimately, she decided to focus on coaching and instructing while finishing her bachelors degree at Florida State University in Sports Management and left the competition scene. Gemma is coming from Florida where she was a staff member of Bolles School Sharks program. While at Bolles, she managed the office, events and assisted with the age group level swimmers. She is thrilled to be back on the pool deck and excited to see where the new O’Neal Aquatics Program goes!
