Coach Jay grew up swimming in Northern Virginia.  He went on to swim for Penn State - Altoona College, where he was team captain and two-time Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.  He's currently working on his Masters in school counseling at George Mason. 

Coach Jay brings a wealth of experience to the Rapids, specializing in coaching both the younger swimmers at Nation’s Capital Swim Club, age 9-11, and also the Club's elite older swimmers, age 15-18.  This will no doubt bring an added dimension to the Rapids 2019 experience, since we have many older swimmers who have grown up with the team.
