Our new head coach, Jonny Songer! He was one of six children growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he learned to swim at three years of age, and swam competitively from ages 5-21. He began coaching when he was fifteen by teaching group and private lessons. He's been the head coach of three summer teams and a coach for two USA club teams, including Nitro Swimming. He has extensive experience developing programs and curriculums.
With a degree in children’s ministry, Jonny's passion is teaching swimming. His unique approach to technique has made his learn-to-swim YouTube channel one of the largest in the world.
"I'm ecstatic to carry on the traditions of the club while creating new programs to meet everyone’s needs! Please, introduce yourself to me the next time you’re at the pool."
– Coach Jonny
