I can say without any hesitation that Gerry is an excellent coach. Gerry helped me to cultivate the love of swimming. He is someone who loves and knows swimming. It is invaluable to have a coach who not only knows the sport but also loves it. I swam on Gerry’s team for twelve years and he was a true constant for me. I have often told him that seeing him at 5:45 or 6:45 in the morning meant that all was well. With his help and inspiration swimming became an integral part of my life. I am and will always be grateful to him.
