Coach Shannon’s journey in the world of competitive swimming began over three decades ago in Montgomery County. Since starting her coaching career in 2007, Shannon has flourished as a program director, overseeing swim lessons, stroke clinics, and coach training programs. She proudly holds the position of Head Coach for the Lakelands Lionfish in the Montgomery County Swim League and offers private swimming lessons to a diverse age group, from children to adults.

As an ASCA Level III Gold certified coach, Shannon’s expertise has led to the development of multiple PVS and MCSL record holders and swimmers who rank in the top 10 nationally, including one who achieved the distinction of being first in the nation. She is also a certified Swim America Site Supervisor, and her commitment to the swimming community spans over 40 years, during which she has cultivated a respected and sought-after reputation within the PVS and MCSL communities. Her 17 years as a USA Swim Certified Coach, ASCA Program Director, and ASCA Level 3 Gold certification, along with her tenure as MCSL Head Coach for Manchester Farm & Lakelands, are a testament to her dedication and impact on the sport.

Coach Kyle’s coaching journey began here at the Quince Orchard Swim & Tennis Club nearly two decades ago. His natural affinity for coaching became evident as he volunteered with pre-teams and minis while competing for the Manchester Farms Dolphins in the MCSL.

Kyle’s commitment to swimming deepened when he became a coach with a USA Club Team in 2005, starting with lessons and progressing to become an ASCA Level III certified coach, and a certified USA Swimming Coach. 

A proud alumnus of the University of Maryland, Kyle holds a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, which he earned in 2013. His university years were marked by his role as an Assistant Head Coach for various MCSL teams. Today, Kyle embarks on his 8th year as Head Coach for the Manchester Farms Dolphins, a role he cherishes as he grew up swimming on this summer team.

Matt Reinheimer

Swim Instructor

Contact: Matt.Reinheimer@ccacc-dc.org

Even as a child, he was drawn to coaching, eagerly assisting the Manchester Farm Swim pre-team with their strokes and techniques. He joined various club teams, where his talent quickly caught the eye of coaches and competitors alike. By the age of 12, he was already earning national honors, setting a course for a remarkable swimming career.

His high school years at Our Lady of Good Counsel were marked by outstanding achievements. Matt not only set an individual record in the demanding 100-yard butterfly but also contributed to a High School Metropolitan Championship record in the fiercely competitive 200-yard freestyle relay. These accomplishments solidified his reputation as one of the top swimmers in the region. Matt finished his high school career with Scholastic All-American honors along with getting recruited by Towson University for the butterfly and sprint freestyle events.

In his eighth year coaching at Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL,) Matt assumed the role of head coach for the Clarksburg Village Vikings, a position that allowed him to impart his expertise and leadership onto a broader scale.

His credentials speak volumes: a USA Swim Coach certification, ASCA level 3 certification, Swim America Site Supervisor certification. Matt's dedication to safety and professionalism is evident in every aspect of his coaching.
