Alex Rayle Returns as Head Coach for 2017

Alex grew up in Crozet and swam for CGST for 9 summers. At heart, he will always be a Gator! He also swam year-round for SMAC, and swam on the high school team at WAHS, earning the distinction of swim team MVP and Jefferson District swimmer of the year as a senior. He currently swims for UNC-Wilmington. Alex made his coaching debut as a CGST junior coach, then became an assistant coach with our team in 2011, coaching the 6U swimmers. Since then, he's been co-head coach for the YMCA Stray Cats in Waynesboro, assistant coach for the YWCA Barracudas in Wilmington, and assistant coach at Boars Head. Alex is familiar with our team traditions and with the JSL rules and expectations. Alex is known for his attention to technique and his ability to connect with swimmers of all ages and abilities. He brings tremendous energy and passion to the job.


We also welcome back assistant coaches Lexi Campbell, Elsa Strickland, Hunter Mitchell, Emily Farabaugh, and Colleen Farabaugh!! Also joining our Staff is Joe Schmidt.
