Hey everyone!
I am very excited for this season of Taz, but unfortunately it will be my last. I have been swimming on Taz since I was 6 years old, along with playing Water Polo since middle school. I have had the opportunity to swim on the Oak Ridge Varsity Swim team and play Water Polo all four years of high school. I participated in the CIF State high school swim meet last May, achieving an All American cut in my 4x100 Free Relay, while setting a new Oak Ridge record. I am currently working at Steve Wallen's Swim School as a private instructor, and love teaching young kids swim technique. Can't wait to beat PT this year, and of course take back the Champs trophy! GO TAZ!!

Hello Taz Parents and Swimmers! My name is Zach Closson. I have a good amount of experience with swimming and coaching. I began swimming for Taz when I was 8 and continued until 12 when I took a few years break to play other sports. I returned to the team when I was 16 and I have been with the team since then. I began coaching for Taz my age 17 season and I will be returning this year for my third season of coaching. I am looking forward for another great season of coaching the excellent swimmers we have on our team and to win another SSL Championship! Go Taz!
