Swim Coaches

Nic Sardo – Head Coach

Nic began his swimming career at a young age and has been thrilled to pursue coaching/swim instruction as a career. Nic began in aquatics instruction at Bingham Aquamotion and Mechanics, which operated out of Strath Haven, Springton Lake, and eventually Cheyney University.

Working with all ages and varying abilities he taught hundreds of young people how to swim over the years. Nic then expanded to several summer aquatics programs including Concord Country Club and Broomalls Lake holding the assistant coach and ultimately head coach positions.

After his experience in a club setting, Nic moved to Westtown School’s Aquatics department and helped lead the developmental swim program. During the summers, he served as the Summer Aquatic Director for Westtown’s summer camp programs. In Nic’s most recent position as Head Coach for the Fitness & Wellness Aquatic Club he worked with swimmers in every age group and assisted in the development of a new competitive swim program.

Nic is originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan and moved to Pennsylvania when he was 7. He has four sisters and a small legion of nieces and nephews that he makes an effort to visit when his schedule permits. Nic also has a dog named Geno. His coaching focus is to help swimmers improve technique and get faster while being a positive role model. He truly enjoys helping swimmers accomplish goals and building relationships with the team.
