Coaches & Directors

Jamie Maccaroni

Swim Team Director

Jamie Maccaroni, our SRA Swim Team Director, and her husband Mac have two swimmers on the team – Vivi (12) and Leo (9). Jamie is a lifelong swimmer, growing up on the Florida panhandle where swimming comes before walking. She competed on her high school swim team and still enjoys swimming in open water races including the Chesapeake Bay 4-miler. She is excited to work with the coaching staff and swimmers and looks forward to meeting new swim team families and seeing familiar faces in and beside the pool.
