Aquatic Masters Swim Team Coach Bio




Jeremy Cohen began his swimming career in the state of Rhode Island at age 11. By high school, he was one of the top swimmers in the state and set numerous pool records. His pool record for the 100 free set at his high school in 1966 still stands. In 2005 he was inducted into the RI Aquatic Hall of Fame. After high school he went to the University of Michigan and made the team as a walk-on. At that time, the U of M was ranked 4th in the NCAA.

Jeremy later transferred to UC Berkeley where he received his degree, majoring in music. Shortly after the Strawberry Canyon Aquatic Masters were founded, he joined the team and has been swimming masters for over 30 years. In that time he has won several PMS championships and has been consistently in the PMS top 10 rankings in a variety of events. In 2009, he reached a lifelong swimming goal by placing in three events at USMS nationals.

Jeremy is also a dedicated fan and student of the sport of swimming. He is knowledgeable about the up and coming swimmers in the world and the latest techniques. Making the transition from swimmer to coach allows him to share his knowledge and love of swimming to his fellow athletes.
