Join the Coaching Staff

The Redwood City Sharks Swim Team’s coaching staff enjoys teaching swimmers of all skill levels that it is possible to reach their swimming goals weekly, monthly or by the end of the season. We are looking for other dedicated staff to join us who enjoy training and inspiring new and experienced swimmers of all ages. Eligible staff are those with a passion for developing swimming improvement by being committed to positively spreading their expertise to the young minds of our swimmers.

We encourage all staff to contribute to the coaching process by introducing new techniques for stroke enhancements, as well as new training swim games. In order to achieve this, we expect individuals to approach each swimmer with patience and willingness to engage. We are a staff of energy and positivity open to new ideas and creative approaches.
