MEET THE COACHES

All of our coaches, as members of USMS or USA Swimming, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification programs for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time spent in the pool will be quality time with a focus on improving their techniques.

PETE SONG

Pete coaches the older swimmers and has great rapport with the team.  He emphasizes the key stroke skills, and encourages them to push a little harder as they grow and develop as competitive swimmers. Pete has been coaching for many years and has enjoyed watching the team grow. 

CARRINA IACOBACCI

PPSC Coach

I've been swimming since I was around six years old and haven't really stopped being by/in the pool since!  Here at PPSC I coach the youngest group - six and up, generally kids in the beginning water skills category.  My main focus is teaching water safety, developing a love for the sport, and preparing kids for competition.  Outside of the water I'm a huge science nerd and love anything biology or robotics related.  Getting the opportunity to help coach this team has been a wonderful gift and I'm so excited to see where we can go!
