About Jonathan:  “I’ve had the pleasure of coaching the Seadogs for the past seven seasons, leading the team to 5-straight division championships. During the year, I teach International Baccalaureate Lit/Lang and Theory of Knowledge at Old Mill High School and help assist age-group swimmers at Retriever Aquatic Club.”


Swimming Instructor: Amber Statland
You can contact Amber at ambershipp@gmail.com or 301-651-0334About Amber:  My name is Amber Shipp and I have been teaching swim lessons at Waugh Chapel for 11 years. Prior to that, I was a lifeguard at WCSC for three years in high school and college. I have been a teacher with Anne Arundel County Public Schools since 2009 and currently teach 1st grade on Ft. Meade. 

Having grown up in Four Seasons, I spent my summers at WCSC. I love being able to continue to help the swim club community and consider it a privilege to work with its youngest swimmers!
