Tom Sweeney
Head Coach

I coach swimming courses for the juniors program, the swim team, the masters program, and I teach private lessons to swimmers of all ages and abilities. The atmosphere at Scott Valley Swimming & Tennis Club is always positive and welcoming. The grounds are peaceful and the facilities are ideal for teaching and learning. The staff at the club is a fantastic group of people and it is always a pleasure to work alongside them to assist the friendly community of Scott Valley.

Paul Lundgren
Masters Coach Swim Instructor

Paul Lundgren grew up a competitive swimmer in Idaho, raced triathlons professionally in Southern California and coached countless triathletes through the 90’s and into the new century. Paul’s goal as a coach is to inspire an appreciation for the technical and physical nuances of swimming and its relationship to the mind/body experience. Paul is currently training to swim 100 miles across the Sea of Cortez and would like nothing more than to share the lessons from his experience through coaching and private swim instruction. Paul is available for adult swim lessons and can be contacted by email.

Born and raised in Scott Valley, my love for the water began as a Sea Serpent at the age of 4. After swimming and playing water polo in Marin for over 14 years, helping coach along the way, I attended UC Davis, where I played Division I water polo for 4 years and earned my Teaching Credential and Masters in Education. My love of teaching and coaching has brought me back to the bay area, and I feel honored to be a part of the Scott Valley community once again. I hope to be able to create the same positive, competitive, exciting atmosphere around swimming that I was a part of when I began over twenty years ago, while instilling the passion and drive for lifelong learning both in and out of the water.

Greg Myers
Assistant Coach

Swimming has always been a part of Greg’s life. He started swimming in his youth at the Tiburon Peninsula Club and swam locally through his first two years of college. His first coaching experience was at TPC and coached summer league for over 12 years, both in Lucas Valley and Scott Valley. Over the years he also coached with Don Schwartz at the Marin Aquatic Club and high school swimming at both Terra Linda and Redwood. Most recently he coached at North Bay Aquatics. It was his love of swimming and kids that got him involved in coaching and teaching. He taught and headed up the middle school at Ross School for many years. After retiring as an educator, Ken DeMont and Don Schwartz lured him back to coaching for North Bay Aquatics and a couple of his former Scott Valley swimmers encouraged him to consider being the assistant at Scott Valley. He is thrilled to be back to have the opportunity to coach in such a positive and healthy environment. Greg got himself back in the water about 20 years ago after not being able to run the trails on the mountain. He has been doing open water swims since, with the most notable to date being an English Channel crossing in 2011 with four buddies from the Olympic Club. His favorite open water swims are the Maui Channel Relay and Trans Tahoe Relay (which include former Scott Valley Swimmers Greg coached). Greg thinks it is fantastic to have the opportunity to come back and coach a second generation of Scott Valley swimmers.
