Sophia DelBondio Osgood - Assistant Coach
Coach Osgood was an accomplished swimmer in high school and college. In college, she was part of the relay team who broke the record for women's 200 free relay in 2014 and then again in 2016. She also broke the record for women's 400 free relay in 2016.
Coach Osgood began teaching swim lessons and life-guarding the summer before high school. Over time, she continued to teach swim lessons and became an assistant coach of a Junior Olympic Water Polo team for girls 16 and under. The thing Coach Osgood loves about coaching is seeing a child's reaction when they finally accomplish a goal or skill they've been working on.
Coach Osgood shared, "We all know it's never going to come easy to everyone right off the bat. I love seeing hard work pay off for a deserving athlete."
Coach Osgood's always encourages the kids not to give up. It's called practice for a reason, and she tells the swimmers, "You don't go to practice everyday to be perfect and have record times. You go to put in hard work, be dedicated, and have fun while doing it."
When Coach Osgood isn't at the pool, she spends a lot of time with her firefighter husband on the boat, at the beach and playing with their new puppy.
