Coach John Dalton


I began my coaching career with North Jeffco Swim Team located in Arvada, Colorado back in 2013. While coaching for North Jeffco, I coached three groups (two 8&U groups, one 11-12 group) where my swimmers gone on to qualify for State, Far Westerns and Age Group Zones.  

In 2016, I moved out to California to coach for the Sierra Marlins as the Head Age Group Coach. During my time with the Marlins, I had swimmers qualify for SWAGR, Far Westerns, Sectionals and Futures.  We also had a few swimmers (also a relay) make a National Top 10 time placing in both short and long course. Along with National Top 10 times, we had multiple team records broken as well as one Sierra Nevada record broken. This past June, I was elected as an Age Group Vice Chair for Sierra Nevada Swimming. 

I love coaching! I love the sport of swimming! To me, it is very rewarding to share my experiences with every swimmer and watch them grow as individuals in and out of the pool.
