Announcing our 2017 Coaching Team

Good evening Gliders! We are very proud to announce our coaches for the 2017 Summer Season!

Head Coach: Cameron Higdon

Coach Cameron is returning for his 5th summer as the Gliders' Head Coach. Cameron is the Head Coach for the Farragut High School and Middle School Swim Teams and an Assistant Coach for Prime Aquatics. He has been part of the Glider coaching team since 2008. Cameron is a former Pilot Aquatic Club swimmer and a Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers. Coach Cameron has a long history of success in the Knoxville swim community and is a highly respected coach in East Tennessee. He has a unique ability to relate to swimmers of all ages and skill levels and his dedication to our team, swimmers and families makes summer swimming with the Gliders something truly special.

Assistant Coaches: 

Tyler Mills - While attending Science Hill High School, Coach Tyler was the Tennessee State Champion in the 50, as well as an All American. Coach Tyler swam for four years at the University of Tennessee and was a 3 time all academic SEC performer, a 3 time SEC finalist, was a member of a school record 200 medley relay team and a student athletic advisory committee member. Last summer, Coach Tyler was 33rd in the 100M fly at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Graham Denton - Coach Graham has been swimming for the past 9 years. He has experienced a high level of success during his swimming career that began by being too slow to compete at City Meet to being a collegiate swimmer at Wabash College. He has been a club swimmer for the past 4 years and represented his high school during all years in high school. Coach Graham's passion for this role is contagious and he is so excited to work with our swimmers this summer.

Nathan Benko - Coach Nathan is one of our own! He began his swimming career at age 7 with GCC and then transitioned to a year round swimmer for ACAC at the age of 8. Coach Nathan has remained loyal to both teams for the past 10 years. In addition, he has been a member of the Bearden High School team for the past 4 years. Nathan was an assistant coach for the inaugural season of the Ft. Sanders Storm swim team and has worked as a lifeguard for both Ft. Sanders and Gettysvue. He has also provided swim lessons for kids of all ages. Coach Nathan will be continuing his sport for the next four years as a collegiate swimmer at Birmingham Southern.

Please join us in welcoming our coaching team! It's going to be a GREAT summer!

Introduction of 2015 Coaching Team

 

Introducing our 2015 Glider Coaching Team

We are so excited to introduce our coaching team for the 2015 Summer Season. We are incredibly fortunate to have a highly skilled and highly experienced group of talented coaches to lead the team and teach our kids.

Head Coach Cameron Higdon is returning to lead the Gliders for his third season. Cameron grew up in Knoxville swimming at Bearden High School, where he was an All American and Team Captain, and later at Western Kentucky University. Coach Cameron has coached for a total of 8 summers at Gettysvue and has served as an Assistant Coach for Farragut High School this year. Cameron's main goals as our Head Coach are pretty simple: to teach the kids to swim fast and have a lot of FUN!

We are also happy to introduce two new assistant coaches to our staff: Anya Harris and Holly Roth. Both Anya and Holly have collegiate swimming experience. Anya swam locally for Knoxville Catholic High School and received a scholarship to swim at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY. Anya has also been a coach for Beaver Brook Country Club and Catholic Youth Swimming. Asst. Coach Holly has been a GCC swimmer for many years and swam for TNAQ while living in Knoxville. She just completed her first swim season at Emory and Henry. We are so happy to have her back on the pool deck!

It's going to be a great summer with these outstanding coaches to lead the Gliders!
