Head Coach: Jill McCormick
This is my second year coaching at SRJC. Before coaching here, I was the head swim and dive coach and an English teacher at Piner High School for seven years. I grew up swimming here in Santa Rosa on the Santa Rosa Neptunes, and at Montgomery High School. Ironically, I also swam for Santa Rosa Junior College and was an All-American in the backstroke and relay events. I continued my competitive swimming at UC Davis and I still swim today for Santa Rosa Masters. I would classify myself as a sprinter and a backstroker. My coaching experience ranges from teaching swim lessons to coaching competitive teams such as: The Neptunes, Florin High School, UC Davis, Piner HIgh and women's water polo and swimming and diving here at the JC. My favorite thing about coaching is watching my swimmers and divers improve and laughing on the deck and in the pool. I graduated last spring with a Master's Degree in Education, with an emphasis in athletes and academic achievement, from Cal Berkeley. When I am not coaching or teaching, I spend most of my time with my husband Peter, also a former bear cub swimmer and polo player, and my two sons Lucas and Jack.
Assistant Coach: Cameron Tyson
This is my first year as assistant coach for the bear cubs. Before college I swam for Clear Lake High School, in Lakeport, and for the Lake County Channel Cats Swim Club. I also coached the Channel Cats for four years. I swam for SRJC for two years and was an All-American in the 400 IM both seasons. I am working to become a physical therapist, and currently work as an instructional assistant in the SRJC Adaptive PE Department, aiding and excersizing with people who have disabilities.
Diving Coach: Tim Nobriga
I have coached the SRJC divers for the past 21 years. I have also been a diving coach for Ursuline High School in Santa Rosa. I teach water polo and diving classes for the college and the city of Santa Rosa. I was a diver myself for Chico State University.
