Hello! I am one of your head coaches and most swimmers and students call me Coach Rod or Mr. Rod. I have been coaching swimming and water polo since I was 18 years old. For the first half of my swimming career I coached recreational swimming at Blackhawk Country Club (HOX) and at Monte Vista High School (Mustangs). Now I coach recreational swimming at Diablo Country Club (Sharks) and have had the privilege of coaching at Dublin High School (Go Gales!!!). As for water polo I have coached various clinics at both Blackhawk and Diablo Country Clubs and have coached high school water polo at Monte Vista. Water polo has always been extremely enjoyable as that was most of my aquatics focus throughout high school and college. It is my hope to bring my passion for water polo to Dublin High in the coming years.
At each place I have coached I have learned that before we could grow as athletes we must grow as a community. It is extremely important that each swimmer develops both as a person and as an athlete.
“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”
