ADVANCED GIZMO


This class is taught by:

Kevin Baynes

Kevin has always been in the water for one reason or another. He learned to swim at the age of 4. At age 6, he began to swim for the Chantilly National Bluefins under Nancy Monaghan until the age of 18. After his last year of swimming competitively, he began to lifeguard for NV Pools for the next three years where he taught group and private swim lessons throughout the summer. In 2010, Kevin was the assistant coach of the Stone Ridge Sharks. He is currently enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College where he is studying engineering and is planning to transfer at the end of Spring ‘15. Kevin joined Machine Swim School in Spring ‘13 and has enjoyed his time working here. When Kevin is out of the water, he likes spending his time watching TV, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends and family.

Paul Hart

Paul began swimming at age 9 with the Wakefield Chapel Wahoos and shortly after began swimming year round with the Starlit Aquatic Club until graduation from high school and swimming briefly for the University of Virginia swim team. Paul also swam for Bishop Ireton High School and has many fond memories of being a member of this team.
 
Paul has had several coaching positions over the years: Sleepy Hollow Bath & Racquet for 4 summers, assistant coach for Paul VI High School for 2 seasons, Victor Swim Club for 7 years, Country Club of Fairfax for 3 summers, and 2 years with the Potomac Marlins.
 
Paul swam for the Fairfax and Clark masters programs for a few seasons and now swims, on and off, for fitness. Paul has competed in a few triathlons but does not enjoy the running portions; if there were more biathlons he might compete more regularly.
 
Paul enjoys helping young people increase their swimming skills so that they have more fun in the water, success at whatever level of competition they choose to compete, and hopefully develop increased self-confidence and discipline along the way. Paul works as a psychotherapist for adolescents, adults and families when not at Machine Swim School.

Shannon Harper

Shannon started swimming at the age of 5. She started on a summer swim team in PWSL and loved it. A year later she started swimming competitively at age 6 for Prince William Swim Club (Amberjax’s). At age 10 she switched to Occoquan Swimming (OCCS) and then later on switched to Machine Aquatics at age 14. She has swum in many USA Swimming meets like Sectionals, Junior Nationals, and Arena Pro Series meets around the nation. She has been working for Machine Swim School since February 2013 and couldn’t ask for a better job. She loves working with children and helping them enhance their swimming skills. Currently, she attends James Madison University where she is a D1 swimmer there, so you will only see her around in the summer time on her breaks.
