Meet The Owners

Mark Minier  is an “Ohioan” with a great affection for the South. His youth swimming career started in Ohio and culminated in Pennsylvania as an All-America at Westminster College.  He met his wife, Jessica, on a pool deck in his coaching travels and they now have twin boys.    He coached Olympic team finalists in 2008 & 2012, Olympic Team Members in 2004, 2008, & 2012 and Trials Qualifiers from 2000 to 2012.  He was on the coaching staff for the World Championship Team in Rome in 2009 and the National Team from 2006-2012.  “Prepare the child for the path, not the path for the child.”
