NOVA's coaching staff is one of the most dedicated, and decorated, coaching teams in the country. Each professional coach has the experience needed to guide each NOVA swimmer in his or her personal swimming quest. Whether your child is learning to swim, looking to improve technique, or trying to make it to the Olympic Trials, our coaches can help.

Most of our coaches work full time for NOVA. Our club has worked hard to make sure that we are able to attract the best and brightest, and that NOVA keeps them. Some of the most seasoned coaches work with the youngest swimmers. The wealth of experience is evident and directly translates into our success as a club, at all levels.

Our coaches view their work as a way to build swimmers inside and out. A focus on quality of instruction over quantity of laps means your child benefits from an environment where goals are set and met and successes are celebrated in a safe and nurturing environment. Practices focus on age-appropriate, targeted training designed to ensure that kids know proper technique. Advancement happens when the right combination of skill, age and commitment comes together.
