Alex Cushman – Head Coach
acac is proud to announce Alex Cushman as acac Head Swim Team Coach! Alex brings over 7 years of head coaching experience as well as many years of accomplished swimming. Alex will be leading both our Summer and Winter Swim Team programs.
Alex began his swimming career at a young age at the Pottstown YMCA, where he qualified for nationals in multiple events. Alex also swam for Spring-Ford High School where he was an All-American in the 100-yard Butterfly. After high school Alex swam at the University of Pittsburgh. Shortly after his time at Pittsburgh Alex began coaching where he led Owen J. Roberts age group program to their first league championship. Following his time at OJR, Alex coached at acac under coach Billy Gordon for one season. Alex left acac and became the Head Coach at Sun Valley High School.
Alex took a break from coaching to pursue other professional opportunities but was always hopeful to return to swimming in the future. Alex is happy to make his return to coaching and the swimming community and is excited for the opportunity to once again give back to a sport that has given him so much. Alex has always loved how challenging swimming can be but also how much joy it can bring. He is looking forward to helping acac swimmers reach their swimming goals like his coaches helped him.
Alex will be starting coaching duties and preparing for the fast-approaching winter season next week and is excited to meet all of acac’s swim families.
