Coach Bill

Bill is Head Coach of the Montclair Swim Team, a USA-Swimming age-group program in Oakland. He has been there since 1992. Prior to that Bill enjoyed early success coaching both recreational and high school teams back East. More recently he has spoken at numerous coaches' clinics in Northern California, addressing topics in stroke technique and teaching.

Besides coaching, Bill has taught high school and middle school English and continues to tutor. He has a Bachelor's degree in English and philosophy from Bates College in Maine.

Bill coaches the Orinda Aquatics Masters program on MWF from 9-10 AM. As part of his workouts, Bill always includes a "Drill with Bill" session which focuses on a specific stroke or a stroke element. These are always done in a very creative way to better increase the understanding of his lessons. It is a privilege to have Bill as part of our coaching staff.
