CHRIS HARRIS   →   Head Coach

Hi! My name is Chris and I've been around sports my whole life and love teaching and coaching kids. Having been on the pool deck assisting and cheering for the Sharks for so many years, I'm excited to be Head Coach.

My philosophy for swim team is threefold: fun, sportsmanship and fitness. My goal is to instill an atmosphere of fun competition with a focus on individual improvement and team building. I want the kids to challenge themselves while creating great memories and having fun.

Looking forward to the opportunity to coach your kids!
