Coach Evan was born and raised in Leverett, MA where he spent most of his early life playing with legos, studying Native American history, and playing basketball with friends. It wasn’t until he was 12 that he discovered his passion for competitive swimming with the Amherst Tritons Swim Team.
In his tenure as a swimmer, Evan swam on the East and West Coast – locally with the Tritons and Amherst High School, and with Team Santa Monica and the Santa Monica City College team. He earned JR College All-American status as part of several relays and also set some of his personal best times in the Master’s program that he swam in post-college.
As Evan’s career shifted from competitive swimming to coaching both high school and club, he also started his own private swim lessons business. In August 2018, Evan started ONE Aquatics; a coached owned swim club. Evan prioritizes quality over quantity and encourages swimmers to believe in themselves – while incorporating some of the important concepts he has learned from coaches, co-workers, and athletes he has met along the way. Many athletes have experienced success under his leadership; including two Division 1 College swimmers, a JR national qualifier, and a New England record holder. Evan is a certified Level 3 ASCA coach.
Evan joined the Deerfield girls varsity swimming and diving coaching staff in the winter of 2019-2020.
