Fees

In order to better serve our membership, masters swim classes will be free for all JCC members beginning October 1, 2016. As a result, we will no longer offer a masters swim card for non-members. In line with all JCC fitness classes, non-members will pay a $15 drop-in fee to participate.

For membership details please contact Gillian at (858) 362-1115 or gilliana@lfjcc.org.

Sydney Hammerness
Coach Sydney Hammerness

I started coaching in 2009 for a summer swim league in the Imperial Valley. Once I started coaching I fell in love with swimming in a whole new way. Over the years I have learned from those teachers and coaches around me to build upon my knowledge of stroke technique for teaching both children and adults. I look forward to improving your stroke technique to maximize your efficiency.

Will Hansen
Coach Will Hansen

Coach Will Hansen, a Presidential Fitness Award recipient, has in depth experience in overall training with a keen ability to communicate and coach in an effective, easy, and fun manner to help anyone reach their goals regardless of athletic swimming background or age.

Coach Emma Sasson

Emma Sasson, a local San Diegan, first got her taste of swimming at 7 years old when she joined her first swim team. At age 11, she wanted a change but still craved the water and began playing water polo. She continued through middle school, high school, and eventually college as an NCAA athlete at UC San Diego. She also competed in the 2013 Maccabiah Games in Israel on the first women's water polo team for the United States, winning the gold medal. 

Alongside her athletic career, Emma has coached water polo for the past 7 years for Pacific Polo, a local water polo club team. She also coaches water polo and swim team at Westview High School and is an assistant water polo coach at Mesa College. Emma has been apart of Masters Swim for the past 7 years as a swimmer and is excited to be involved as a coach. She loves to make sure that her swim sets are broken up in an interesting way, and hopes that she will be a fun addition to the coaching staff at the JCC! 

Coach Megan Steinberg

Megan started pursuing swimming in High School and continued through college. She started her freshman year with little to no experience competitively swimming. She joined a club team which helped her to swim in college. She made the All American team for Southern California representing her college and then decided instead of continuing her swimming she'd rather coach. She taught swim lessons when she was younger, but coaching was really where her passion was. Her first coaching experience was through the Navy helping enlisted service members learn how to pass higher swimming tests and qualify for specialized operations positions. Then she started coaching for Grossmont High School/Point Loma High and then eventually moved up to coaching at Grossmont College. Now she is excited to be working at JCC and returning back to her roots of youth team swimming.
