Pierre Ruffin

Coach Pierre Ruffin has over 30 years of experience as a swim coach. His bio is different than that of most swim coaches you will read because his story is markedly different than that of most swim coaches.

Most notably missing is a list of Pierreā€™s personal experience as a swimmer. This is because Pierre does not swim. He came to swimming by a circuitous route. His four daughters wanted to participate in a sport and swimming seemed like a reasonable and somewhat accessible choice. Pierre attended their practices and events and became a student of the sport.

A lifelong learner, Pierre began reading books to advance his knowledge of stroke and technique. To say that swimming changed his life, without being a swimmer, would be an understatement.

His 2014 interview with Gary Hall Sr. of The Race Club in Florida is included in this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzDbjyrf9H

Pierre has coached many outstanding athletes. Below are just a few that Pierre is particularly proud of:

- Burley Bokos

- Lauren Cox

- Jacob Furlong

- Jeffrey Hou

- Jennifer Iverson
