|Dear BBT Member:
We are very excited to announce that Coach Jeanine Surfus will be returning for the 2018/19 summer swim team seasons! Coach Jeanine, who has over 20 years experience in both instruction and coaching swimmers of all ages and levels, will continue to oversee the lesson program and serve as head coach of the swim team for 2018 and 2019 (and hopefully, years to come).
Ms. Surfus, her husband and three children, ages 23 , 19 and 13 (all swimmers) moved to Maryland in 2015. She originally hails from Muncie, Indiana where she began teaching swimming in high school where she was a competitive swimmer herself. After moving to Pennsylvania in 1999, she began coaching for Palmyra Aquatic Club. In 5 1/2 years coaching there, she increased the prominence of the team and coached swimmers at the highest levels of national competition. From 2005-2015, she coached for Hershey Aquatic Club year round, including their separate summer team. She has coached many swimmers of all age groups, both developmental and highly competitive, to perform to their best ability.
|She currently coaches at a local well regarded club team, Machine Aquatics, based out of the University of Maryland. Machine Aquatics has made allowances for her to be available to the BBT swimming community over the summer and she is very aware of the time and energy demands of our large high energy, fun loving yet competitive team. She is very up for the challenge and eager to coach a summer team that truly is a a summer team.
Please join the Board in welcoming back our BBT Swim Program Director - Jeanine Surfus!
