Meet & Greet with Jeff Float
January 17 @ 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm
COME MEET JEFF FLOAT, THE NEW OTTERS SWIM COACH
Jeff Float will be the new Head Otters Recreation Coach for our swim program. He is an Olympic Gold Medalist and has been named World Champion. Float began swimming at Arden Hills at age seven when he was coached by the legendary Sherm Chavoor, who was then training Olympic greats Mark Spitz, Debbie Meyer, Mike Burton and others. His passion for the sport allowed him to travel the world and earn countless prestigious accolades: an Olympic Gold Medal, Deaf Olympian of the Century, Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, etc.
“I had a storybook ending to an amazing swimming career which culminated in Gold for what was recently named the third most exciting relay in Olympic history,” said Float. “Now I have this amazing opportunity to finish my rewarding career here at Arden Hills, the very place where it all began. It feels right, just like coming home.”
In his new role at Arden Hills, he will work closely with the Aquatics Director and talented coaching staff to help elevate dedicated recreational swimmers to enjoy competing at the elite level. We invite you to come meet Jeff on January 17th in the Legacy Lounge for a casual Meet & Greet.
