Instructor Profile-Coach Thomas

Coach Thomas is currently the supervisor at both our Albany and Schenectady locations, and has been doing a phenomenal job each weekend working with the staff to provide the best possible lesson experience for our families. Starting in 2012, Thomas began as an instructor within the Excel program, and from there began taking on more responsibilities until taking over as supervisor in the Fall of 2017. Since then, Excel has been able to add some additional classes, make curriculum changes, and soon to be new programs. Thank you Coach Thomas for all of your hard work every weekend!

Excel’s annual wetsuit demo day is scheduled for Thursday, April 12th from 5:30pm-7pm. This is a FREE event, where all attendants will have the opportunity to try any TYR wetsuit in the pool, and get advice from a TYR representative. If interested in attending, please RSVP to [email protected] today!
