Mighty Mechanics (6-8)


This class is taught by:

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.
