Meet our Junior Coaches
Our Junior Coaches are an influential part of our team. Not only are they devoted to excelling in their own swimming techniques, but they also have the passion to share that knowledge with our younger swimmers. All of our Junior Coaches are volunteers and are learning from our more seasoned coaches so they can go on to be future Assistant Coaches and/or Head Coaches.

Carter is a rising Freshman heading to Vernon Malone College and Careers Academy where he will be studying in their Bio-Pharmaceutical Technology program. He has been swimming for the Eagle Ridge Swim Team since 2018. In 2021 Carter was a kid catcher, helped with younger age group practices, and was the recipient of the Coach's Award for Outstanding Sportsmanship. He also swims year-round for Marlins of Raleigh and hopes to continue swimming all the way through college. When Carter is not swimming, you will most likely find him playing some sort of musical instrument. While his main focus is the alto saxophone, he also plays the tenor and bass clarinet, baritone saxophone, keyboard, and accordion. He is also learning to play the guitar when he has spare time. Carter has been an influential role model for his 2 younger siblings and loves to share his passion for swimming and music with them.
Carter is so excited to be back in the water this year and ready to teach your little ones all he knows!
