Jerry most recently served as Susquehanna University Men’s and Women’s Head Swimming and Diving coach since 2009 and as the Assistant Athletic Director from 2016. He has also been the Head Coach for the GSVY/Sunbury- YMCA for the past 13 years, growing state and national qualifiers and champions.  Jerry has developed five individual national titles during his tenure as a YMCA coach and has had swimmers recruited by all divisions within the NCAA.

Jerry will start the last week of May. When he begins, he will focus on building relationships with our site’s coaches and families in addition to setting and leading the overall vision for YOTA.

“I am energized by the opportunity to be the first ever Senior Director of Competitive Swimming of YOTA.” Says Jerry. “I am eager to develop a personal relationship with each coach, swimmer, and family associated with the YOTA swim team. During this process it has become evident how much the coaches and YMCA leadership care about this program and that dedication, ultimately, was why I wanted to be part of the YOTA swimming family.”

    Glad to hear about your latest position. As a parent of two of the swimmers you coached, this very well deserved. Best of luck, Jerry.
