 Founder / Associate Head Coach

Sandra Jones

 

Coach Sandra Jones founded TIDE Swim Team in 1988 and since that time has been involved in every aspect and level of TIDE Swimming.  As Associate Head Coach and Head Age Group Coach, all TIDE programs benefit from Sandra's wealth of experience in club coaching.  Sandra has a special talent for developing quality stroke mechanics at any age.  She is able to receive information at an elite level and present information back to swimmers in an age appropriate learning environment. Sandra began TIDE's Stroke Academy for that very purpose.  Her team goal is to build a superior age group program that best prepares TIDE athletes for high levels of competitive swimming.  She is lead coach of Age Group White and Regional 1. 

Sandra received a Master's degree in Education (exercise science) from the University of Pittsburgh where she served as an assistant coach for the Women’s Swimming and Diving team.  As a student athlete at Penn State University, she was a 4-time Division I All-American.

In her 30 years of coaching experience she has trained athletes from novice to national levels.  Her passion for swimming and genuine joy towards others lends itself to the trademark of excellence TIDE Swimming strives to represent.

Coach Sandra is married to Dr. Davis Jones , a local pediatrician, and a proud mother of three beautiful young ladies all highly successful in their fields of endeavor.

"…The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; … and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
