Ethan McHugh is no stranger to Glen Oaks having swan in these waters since he was 5 years old.  He graduated from our Team as a Lifetime Sea Lion, (swimming from the age of 5 through high school graduation) so he knows all about the teams’ standards, expectations, sportsmanship, and coaching. Ethan furthered his aquatic training by swimming and playing water polo while attending Jesuit High School. This is Ethan’s 6th year working at Glen Oaks and his third year coaching and giving private lessons for Roxanne. While he has many fond memories growing up at Glen Oaks, reaching the 13/18 group and working out with Gary, along with our annual summer BBQ, tops his list. Certainly, the lifelong friends, connections, and memories of being a sea lion are priceless.  He looks forward to being part of this coaching staff and helping to create more memories for the team.
